Hey everyone, today I became a Russian tortoise mama :). I have a yearling that was sent to me this morning. He hasn't ate much but I'm assuming it's due to new environment. What I did want to ask you guys is I was wondering if it is normal that he has been completely buried the last 1 1/2 hours? I know they burrow but is it normal that long? Thanks so much

If the temperatures and UVB lights are all correct, then it is ok for your tortoise to be burrowing for that long. If you start getting concerned just check those two things just to be sure everything is ok.
My tortoise sleeps and burrows a lot too. But he moves places every couple of hours so he might be more active than what i am aware of.
