Hi there from Cape Town. I recently aquired a baby Angulate tortoise, dont know it's age. It is a rescue I have had it for 10 days now and it still has not eaten anything. Is it still acclimatizing? What other reasons could there be for this?

Post pics of its enclosure, type of lighting heat, housing inside or outside or both and diet.
How often do you soak?
For now give warm water soaks daily to keep him hydrated.

What are you trying to feed him? He probably doesn't recognize it as 'food.'
