In case you wondered if your tortoise gets bored of the same old setup, you might be right.

Changing up decor and feeding locations will help enhance natural habits and conditions and keep your tortoise exploring and grazing.

"The tortoise learned to perform reliably above chance, preferentially choosing baited arms, rather than returning to arms previously visited on a trial...In spite of differences in brain structure, the tortoise showed spatial learning abilities comparable to those observed in mammals."
