Kandi, if its not too late, try feeding your tortoise fluker tortoise diet to get him eating again. tortoises love this food and i never had a tortoise that did'nt eat it. re-evaluate your enclosure, if its too small he may be stressed. once he starts eating again, give him grass, weeds, and clovers.
