So I have a friends sulcata tortoise who hasn't been eating and who's been a bit lethargic. I took her to my vet (her owner didn't want to be bothered) and we discovered she has a belly full of gravel. UGH on top of this she isn't eating. We gave her a vitamin injection to stimulate her appetite but I was wondering what foods your sulcatas find irresistable. I will try whatever it takes to get her eating. I know they shouldn't normally have much fruit but it would help get things moving if she'd eat. (oh yeah we did enemas too, so were working this from both ends). Any ideas would be appreciated.
