I've finally watched this now I'm at home and not using up my phone's data allowance, I've had a busy day!

He's lovely :)

I'd get a few stones in their for him to scramble over and maybe add a plant or two for him to nibble on/

Thanks :D Yes I plan on getting the cuddlebone and some other things to get him working lol.. he is very active as u see. He looks bigger on they video as I'm close up bad using my phone for the video filming.

Dies his shell look OK? I was looking at some shells that are pyramiding and I don't want this to happen it is bad. His shell looks lifted a bit in the back but I think that is normal :) God I should stop reading lol

He looks good no pyramiding as for age it is hard to tell my 3 WC russians are all older ones except for my female. I would hazard a guess at 1 to 2 years based on how he looks in your hand, But age is impossible to tell without a hatch date. I wouldn't worry to much about his age though, just relax and enjoy him.

Yeah I have a pic here of him in my sons hand also.. son is 4. So its hard to tell.. but if he is.between 1-2 I guess that's good as he seems healthy and he shouldn't be as hard as a hatchling to care for :)
I am enjoying him..as is my son. He's a big help in feeding crusher :D

This morning he was fed peppers,dandelions flower and leaves and rose leaves. He seemed really interested in the pepper but frustrated at the same time having to bite and pull and fight to get it lol. Since I didn't make it small enough for a single bite :D

A very cute sleepy tort. I really wouldn't stress about a few sleepy days. Make sure you soak him to keep him hydrated and double check the temperatures in your viv (warm end, cool end, basking and overnight min).

As outside temps change seasonally, it can affect the temps in your viv without you realising

Leaving him out there was great he always.kept coming out from his hide to browse around... went to his water but quickly ran from that lol. Hoping that he starts to go soak on his own soon :) he did not go into his hide for bed until 6 this evening :D at the end of the week coming we are going to be getting him a bigger space!!! And adding the stones as mentioned! I can't wait! I bet he will love it
