Redfoot won’t eat

i have a year and a half old redfoot and she’s never eaten a lot and is very fussy, but usually eats the mazuri I give her but for the last week she has barely eaten and I’m struggling to even get her to eat the mazuri now and she’s starting to seem very weak and I’m not sure what to do

The most common cause of a tortoise not eating is because he's not warm enough. In order for us to help you, we'll need to know much more about the tortoise and his living conditions. Pictures would be nice too.

Agree as well with temps, but a poor diet is another concern and cause for weakness and lethargy. More detail on diet, temps, humidity, and foods tried are needed.
