Hi there fellow tort lovers, I just got my hermans tort and was wondering if anybody had any segesstions on how to keep him healthy. I have a 4 by 3 tortoise table with a hot dry area, basking space, and cool humid area. I am using 2 bulbs [UVB and basking bulb]. He has two half log hides, one in each temp zone. Fpr substrate i am using a 50/50 mix of top soil and timothy hay. Temps are 70 at cool side, 80 in the warm side and 90 under the basking bulb. I would add a picture of him but he seems to have burrowed into the hay( is this normal?) And i dont want to disturb him. Thanks for the help!
