FYI the white goo is urates, that is how they pass urine.

Good Luck
It sounds like you are doing well with him -soaking eating a little etc
Changing the UV-I made the same mistake and thankfully switched it off very soon after starting to use the coil bulb( after following advice on this forum)

Thanks to this forum we are all learning!

Good luck on Friday with the vet visit-hoping all is well soon

Could he be describing the jelly type poop you see when a tortoise hasn't eaten in a long time? Just wondered as I had sick babies once that passed that on arrival and then slowly it turned into normal poop consistency once the appetite was improved?

I see the urates thing too with the Hermanns babies.

hi my friends um well i've been soaking him in water mix with squash and he like to drink it. i wish he would eat the mazuri but for some reason he pays no attention to it. im leaving now to go buy a light fixture and a bulb of the long type of uvb. i stopped force feeding him yesterday. and when he's popped the last time its no longer little white goo it now looks like poop little black and a lot more than he use to poop. thank you

btw can some one tell me what would be a good substrate? i have mine in timothy hay.



Maybe try the new red tort stick, I heard Zoo use them... maybe the red color will help get him to eat.
