Hi my Russian horsefield tortoise went missing out of his enclosure in august last year! He turned up 3 days ago absolutely fine, I gave him a warm bath he ate dandelions and drank. The day after his mouth was gaping open but inside his shell, he’s booked in to see a reptile specialist at 2.15 tomorrow. Now he’s been unresponsive for 30 hours . His head is in his shell eyes closed not bulging. If I pinch his foot ect he’s not responding. He has heat and daylight. I think he’s dead? Can anyone help? I realise that a gaping mouth probably ment a respiratory problem

Has he moved yet? Have you tried a warm water soak, making sure to keep the water below his head.
So sorry this is happening. Keep us posted.
