Don't knknowWhat was it being fed before you picked it up. Also please add photos of the setup and include temps and humidity. Here is our care guide https://www.tortoiseforum.org/threa...se-a-sulcata-leopard-or-star-tortoise.181497/
I give him romain mustard and cactus today it's just tortoise feed trying to get him to eat the tortoise grassDitch the fruity pebbles (is that what the previous keeper told you to feed?), and chop up some edible weeds and grass.
Figure out a way to cover the enclosure, lights and all. You can either buy one of those little greenhouses (I'm hoping one of our members will give you a link), or build a frame out of PVC pipe and drape sheet plastic over it.
Sulcata eggs hatch in the monsoon season (lots of green, hot and wet!!!) and growing your baby in hot, humid conditions grows him up to have a smooth (as opposed to pyramided) shell.
If the baby won't eat chopped up edible weeds and plants and grass then offer him som dark, leafy greens like turnip greens, endive, escarole, etc.
He's not eating because your were given the wrong advice about how to house, heat and care for him. Also, they only need calcium once or twice a week.He gets all the greens plus it's dusted in calcium and d 3 vitamins and he gets the tortoise pellets with the vitamins
