    Walking Backwards

    I have just awoken my 4 year old tortoise from hibernation and all appears well, other than that he is walking backwards, and going round in circles. Also, he hasn't eaten or drunk yet although I do sit him in his bath every evening so he has access to liquid.

    Should I be worried and if he doesn't start eating and/or drinking, should I take him to the vet to get checked over? I woke him on Saturday, today is Wednesday.

    Thanks for any help,
    Marnie

    The walking backwards is a defensive thing. What kind of tortoise do you have?

    When you say he is walking in circles, do you mean just keeps walking around his enclosure or just does more like tight circles?
