I got a new Russian Tortoise from a reputable reptile store about 6 weeks ago, She is about 41/2 inches and appeared active and healthy when I bought her. She continues to be very shy, not eating from my hand and withdrawing when picked up, generally hissing. This is quite different from my first tortoise who was very responsive, liked to be scratched on her neck, and responded positively to attention. Help!
