    Really pleased to hear he's doing better now, there's loads of reasons he might have been a little down, settling in might be one of them, especially if he was with other tortoises before he came to you, I bought mine as a pair so they had it a little easier but they still took a week or so to settle in, they're happier with other tortoises so I'm told.....if mine get quiet I usually put them in the bath and they liven up.
