my redfoot's usual drinking routine is to really tank up on a lot of water maybe once a day. the past week or so, though, she's drinking very little, if anything. i'm thinking that this might be because i bought her some cactus and she's been enjoying it.

so should i be concerned? could it be that she is getting enough water from the cactus and that's why she's just not thirsty? what are the signs of a dehydrated tortoise?

thanks in advance for reading the post of a worried "tort mom"...
