    I noticed that on the last couple of weeks my tortoise has been less active. he will come out to eat but then will go back to her hide and sleep. I have also noticed that my hes digging deeper into the substrate. My substrate is 6 inches deep.

    morning temperatures are 30-35c

    night temps are around 20c - I have a ceramic heat emitter that doesn't let it go below that.

    I soak my tortoise every 2 days - He comes out and basks but will go to sleep after eating. I have a feeling that hes trying to brumate.
