    my juvenile Sulcata escaped from her outdoor pen on Thursday. We have been searching for her, but to no avail. Any suggestions or tips to lure her out of hiding would be greatly appreciated. We live on a farm and are not worried about the usual suburban pitfalls. I’m convinced she is burrowed in somewhere.

    Use craigslist, put up fliers (old school), see if there is an app for lost pets

    The early morning is a good time to check, as most tortoises will just be waking up and basking. Best of luck with the search!

    Bushes, fences, rock areas, tree lines, large holes in the ground, digging areas, ask neighbors...those are where I would start with. Search high and very low. Hope you get it back. I feel yeah.
