    I have a baby cherry head red foot and lately she has not been eating and isn't very active. All she does is sleep and move to different ends of the enclosure once in awhile. Any ideas?

    A picture of her enclosure will be most helpful to identify the problem.

    Also, let us know what you are feeding and the temperatures within the enclosure (basking, warm end, cool side).

    What are the temperatures in the enclosure? When temps are too cool, torts often don't want to eat and aren't very active.
