Hi I had Shelby just over a month now she lives in a viv but when its warm i take her outside and put her in a pen in the sun. She seems to spend about 6 to 7 hrs awake then goes to bed when she's outside i watch her and if she seem to get sleepy i bring her in she then takes her self off to bed, is this normal for a young tortoise she decided to go to bed at 3.45 i put the light on at 10 and turn it off at 10pm but she is only awake for half that time. She eats well and is gaining wieght she as put on 10g in the month i had her, i bath her every over day and give her vits and calcium she is fed on garden weeds she looks healthy but i worry about the time she goes to bed.
