He's still not using the box though. He's going to have to learn to when winter comes.

My tort is using a half of his box but as soon as I take him outside - using up those sunny days- put him in planter box he is like Bye Felicia.

Neither of mine use their box either 😤 they just hide under plants. If I stick them in there at night after lights out, they come right back out. Drives me nuts lol

Same with a hideout - tort is like yeah nah I be right in the middle, slightly sideways with my head hanging so you have to worry if I am OK ...

This is my Hermann tortoises current set up he’s recently enjoyed climbing over bridges and pots so we often change it up to give him new things to do!

Since Murphy isn't using the box I decided to try something different. I got this doghouse cheap. I put the log he likes hiding under inside the house. There's two radiant heat panels mounted on the roof. He's outside right now so he has no idea his pad has changed yet 😬 I still need to find some plastic curtains for the door.

Murphy uses a hide usually, always has. I've always used plastic totes for a hide. I changed out the one I have outside last weekend for a bigger one and it didn't even faze him. I'm thinking it's something to do with the wood?
