I must admit I got this idea from maggie3fan this morning when she was talking about Bob playing with his ball and his bucket. BTW Maggie, me and my family LOVE Bob stories. The kids come home and ask if he has been up to anything lately. LOL

My Sulcata is only 3 months old and she doesn't really do more than sleep and graze.

So I was wondering, what things or games do yout tortoises play or play with? Oh and what kind of tortoise do you have? :D

How cute! I wondered if they ever played like that.

I haven't given her anything to play with yet because when I first got her she would flip over a lot and I am still nervous about that.

LOL Thanks. I am thinking about getting her a ball to play with while I am watching just to make sure.

I LOVE Tank's new enclosure. What kind of succulents are hanging on the hide?

I have a Russian tort, and he doesn't really play with anything but his food lol! He loves to sniff his occasional banana treat and he gets it rubbed all over his little face. Looks like he's giving himself a banana facial! :)

I have seen Pio roll a strawberry around and then use it like he uses his "love rock". Don't know if that's playing or not.

Anything and everything I put in their cages!
I plant a uhm plant... and he decides its good fun to rip it up.
I place a rock, and he decides to play with it and push it into everything else.
I make a fence, and he rips it down....
you get the idea.

are they 'playing' or trying to get that dang new thing or whatever. out of thier way or territory?
Could it cause stress to continue to give them New things because We think they are bored?
I guess it really just depends on the animal..
