My tortoise has been hibernating outside but it’s been getting cold the past few nights so I have been bringing my tortoise inside but since the weather is going to be a little warmer at night I decided to put him back out when I put him in his burrow he came out and ate plants I have in his enclosure and drank a lot of water. Is there any cause for concern? I’ve been reading about gut rot but what should I do?
