I have a male russian of around 6 years old. He has a good appetitte and eats everyday. Problem is he only eats when it is offered to him. So only hand feeding my tortoise will make him eat. Food I put down on his plate he ignores.

I have a busy week with work and I'll be gone for 3 days. That means het won't eat for 3 days. How bad will it be for him, and will this affect his overall behaviour like he thinks it is time to brumate?
