LOL! Little bugger knows what's good!

Last time my tortoise partner visited here he planted an opuntia in my Russian yard, and he cut the bottom off a 5 gallon bucket to place around the cactus. A couple weeks after it was planted I thought, "Hm, these are just little tortoises, how much damage can they do to this cactus?" And I took away the bucket. Later I looked in on them and the poor cactus had many, many bites taken out of it. Needless to say, the bucket went back over the cactus!
