yes he is quite firm if you know what i mean and no if gently poked he does not move,, he is very deep into his shell now but no sign of a covering over the entrance of the shell ,

i have been giving him a warm daily bath and he has lots of food around him , they do have a rainforest heat mat and temp and humidity are all ok, the other 2 are very active eating well ect
