I've become a new mum to a baby horsefield tort. Iv done my research online but I have a few questions/concerns that I need answering.
I bought him home on Tuesday. Iv only seen him eat once mainly curly kale, hes not had a drink even in the bath and all he does is sleep. Is this normal? He burrows himself in his bed/hideaway and I'm panicking that he's not warm enough. I also noticed he had diahoria in the bath. Thanks

Deep breath... babies hide and they take time to get acclimated.

We need to know your warm side, basking, and cool side temps. Are you providing water all the time? Post some pictures of the enclosure if you can.

Also give this a good read. It will answer most questions and make sure your setup is good to go.
