Aggie is always a very active little guy; always scratching at the sides of his enclosure to get out almost as soon as he wakes up and eating very well (sometimes a little too much I think). Lately, he has been kind of lethargic; I wake him up and set him under his heat and UVB lamps and he just sits lays there for hours, barely even looking at his food. He might scratch one or twice but as soon as I get him out he finds a dark corner to fall asleep in. He also freaks out when I try to pick him up and hold him now. I don't know if this has anything to do with the changes I've made to his enclosure or not. He needs a bigger enclosure but we will not be able to build a new one for a few weeks so in an effort to give him some more room I have had to make some changes. I have a Zoomed tortoise house and the dark part of the enclosure ran the whole way across the enclosure, but I cut it so it only runs halfway across and he has more room to roam around now (he still has a dark enclosure though, its just a little smaller now). Also I have recently changed his substrate from reptibark to aspen, which I thought he was doing okay with, but I'm not sure if it offers enough humidity for him, the gauge says the humidity is at 25% and he is a Greek Tortoise. Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.
