    Greetings. Inactivity usually means your little guy is just too cold or sick or even both.

    If you want help diagnosing some possible issues behind the inactivity, upload pictures of your tort’s enclosure, and how you are heating and lighting the enclosure. A few pix of your Sully as well.

    Make sure you closely read and adhere to info provided in the Care Sheet - https://tortoiseforum.org/threads/how-to-raise-a-healthy-sulcata-or-leopard-version-2-0.79895/

    Good luck, Happy Torting - Upload some pix!
