Hello all,

I've kept eastern box turtles as a kid but I just got myself a tiny little hatchling I'm guessing is about a month or 2 old.

He realy hides 24/7 under his substrate or hide spots. He might come out to walk around on his own approximatly once per week.

Question is: Is this normal behavior for his age? I'm just not sure if this is a sign of an issue.

I wake him up late morning daily to eat. He is eating well so no worries there.

Any replies would be appreciated...
