Hypothetically, if I was having a garden party on a hot summer day, could I create a platform harness of some form that I could rig up to my sulcata which would act as a table. I would like to serve beers from his back.

SULCATA BEER PARTY.

Blueprint submissions and suggestions encouraged.

He's currently 6 months old. Just thinking long term. Thank you. God bless.

OMG that is a terrible thought! Much ttoo heavy! I would go with a snack tray like chips and salsa or for weirdos maybe a vegetable tray!

This came into my head the moment I saw the thread title...

In my youth, before I knew better, when I was studying abroad in Ecuador, we visited the Galapagos Islands and a number of us rode, at the insistence of our licensed guide (who swore it wouldn't hurt the beast), on the back of one of the giant tortoises on the big island.

This is an epic idea. This, or a sombrero. With a bowl in the top. You’re blowing my mind.

Riding a tortoise is next level. But yeah bad for obvious reasons.
I’m not rethinking this.
10 years from now I’m going to 3D print a custom tortoise table

I think you could mount a gimballed table to maintain the drinks without spilling...
