So ive had him for about 1 year now hes about to be 2 years old! Just curious on a few things, does he look good? Does anyone see anything off on him? Also hes active some days and other days he prefers to sleep most of the time, his temps never change really, basting area close to 90/100 a cool area of 70 and average temp of 75/80. He has some fake plants in his cage ( he sits on them or destroys them but dont bite or eat them, i have a food plate and wated bowel, a hide and some rocks that ars halfway burried in a corner incase he wants to walk on them, anyway to make him happier? I feel like maybe he isnt satisfied with his home so he sleeps.

Hi, welcome!
What lighting setups are you using for UV and heat supply?
Brand/wattage/bulb type?
Enclosure size?
Substrate type?
Diet?

I'd maybe try uploading a few more shots where your whole setup is visible from a few angles so people can see exactly what's going on and offer you the best advice.

He looks great. Young ones tend to spend a lot of time hiding. If you are fed, warm, and content, there is no need to expose yourself to predators by being out and about.

75 watt basking bulb get to about 90/100 in that area
A 150 watt thats like 18 inches hanging for light and warmth keeps the average temp ares 75 to 80
I have a 12 inch UV

I usually get him out on the weekends to roam the yard and get some real sun for 1-2 hours a day during the weekend

Diet is mixed but lately is some greens but he absolutely loves mazuri tortoise diet pellets

Setup was hand made 5 foot long nearly 3 foot wide, the back part with the roof is his sleeping area, i plan on making a bigger one once he is older aswell as building him a summer outside home. I usually soak his coco fibre every morning for a little xtra humidity, humidity stays around mid 40's maybe close to 50
