    The big tortoise species need to be able to do a lot of walking in order to keep the digestive tract working. Water/hydration and excercise! Just what the doctor ordered.

    Cute dog in the back ground there! Do the tortoise and the dog get along? Are they friends?

    Do you know what made it sick?

    Can you remember what you were feeding it just before it got sick?

    What is its usual diet?

    Hey Enihem,

    I was thinking about you today :)

    How is the tortoise doing? The vegetables you are feeding her "kang kung" is known as a water spinach.

    What I think would be useful is to mix in some dark green leaves and grasses. If you can get hibiscus leaves where you are, try that. The Aldabras LOVE them. They are green, and lead to perfect poops, especially if you can get the tortoise onto some grass every day. Do you have a grassy patch?

    If you mix the diet up so it's alot of grasses/hay and plant leaves (not vegetables like Kang Kung), and then get the tortoise to exercise a bit daily- give it some room to walk, I think that is what will help.

    One last thing, if I soak my tortoises for an hour they poop. If I soak them for 45 minutes they do not. Soaking in warm water for a long time works!

    Please let us know how you are doing?
