Hi everyone! My name is Britt & I have just adopted a 6 year old male Russian Tortoise. His name is Seashell . I have read and understand that this breed of tortoise does hibernate, and being it’s already mid November I am looking for advice on what to expect of his behavior. I give him short warm soak baths, he perks up pretty easily (but definitely seems sleepy) and is not afraid of me one bit. I have seen him drink water, but he hasn’t taken any food (I have had him now 5 days). Could this be his new move? Or hibernation? He sleeps most of the time.
