What can I do if my Land Turtle doesn't want to drink water everyday?
Is it necessary to drink water everyday?

Make sure their water source is large enough (area wise) for them to wade into. Pie pans and shallow tupperware both work very well. Make sure the water is shallow so they don't drown and that the container is easy for them to get in and out of.

If they don't wade at all and look like they're drying out then just put them in a small tote or something with shallow water and let them soak for about 15 min.

Also make sure you research what type of tortise you have. Some desert reptiles can go a long time without water. Others need a humid climate with constant access to water

If you do use a pie pan, make sure that you get an aluminum one, that way it won't rust and it will last you a long time. :D
