I am attaching herein the image of my Tortoise. This one is a male. I have another one which is supposedly a female. About a month ago, I was gifted these by a very dear friend of mine. They are presumably 7 month old exotic tortoises. There few major concerns I have when it comes to these little angles.
1. I am unsure which breed they belong to (Both are identical, hence I'm assuming they're of the same breed, which one, I am unsure. They resemble to Russian Tortoises very much) Can anyone help me Identify their breed?
2. The male tortoise has developed a certain cold for I have been feeding them with Cucumber lately. Having spoken to the vet, I have changed his diet and moved to cabbage, Tomatoes and Carrots. Is there anything else I should be doing?
3. The Male Tortoise is eating healthy but the female seems to be stealing an awful lot of naps lately. The male has been recorded lethargic too but still manages to grab a bite before its nap. The female has stopped eating and sleeps all the time inspite of being woken up repeatedly. If this is because they are at the stage of Hibernation, please suggest effective measures. I come from India and the weather conditions are humid. What should I be doing differently.
Also, I have been wondering why both have been behaving differently at different times. I am new to breeding tortoises in captivity and the mere thought of losing a pet scares me senseless. Please help
