She's trying to break out!
Those little legs!! ? Little Ducky is oh so cute. I had been thinking about you and Ducky over the last week, wondering how things were going, so I’m happy to see some new pictures! With Halloween being tomorrow I was also thinking about the cute vampire Ducky picture from when you first got her. ?

Hello Krista!! How are you and Dozer? He is the handsomest little Devil.. can you send some pics of him?
Ducky normally runs around the enclosure but this is the first time I saw her trying to climb the walls.. Silly Ducky... I think the Vampire Ducky picture is still one of my favorites..

Dozer and I are doing well. I haven’t been on the forum quite as much the last few weeks because I just went through a job change. Same company, just a different position. It’s been a little stressful, but each day gets better. I don’t really have any new pics to show of Dozer since my fall enclosure pics. I had planned on taking some new pics today, but he got up on the wrong side of the bed and was best to be left alone lol.

Congratulations on the new position!!

I guess all celebrities have good and bad days!
 
Why do they try to climb out, I noticed my little Freddie tried to do that, he loves to crawl on my floor
There’s many reasons a tortoise could try to escape their enclosure. Russian’s in particular are very good escape artists and climbers. If you recently got your tortoise, they could be trying to escape to get back “home”. In some cases tortoises try to escape their enclosure because it doesn’t have the proper conditions. It could be too hot, too cold or in a lot of cases, the enclosure is simply too small. Although Russians are a small species, they still need lots of room to roam. A full grown Russian should be in an 8ft x 4ft enclosure or even larger if possible. If the tortoises is housed outside, then much larger is recommended. You should never let your tortoise roam around on the floor. The temperature is too cool and there’s too many hazards. We’ve seen way too many sad endings with tortoises who were allowed to roam around on the floor. If you’d like, start a new thread with more details about what species of tortoise you have and the enclosure they live in and we can help figure out if there’s a reason your tortoise is climbing the walls or if he’s just an adventurous little guy. ?
