I understand that tortoise do like to bury themselves, however I just want to check that what Kevin is doing is normal and not a problem.

He, doesn’t always, but does like to sometimes bury himself into the substrate. I’m not sure if it’s because he’s too hot, too cold, or that he just likes it! He hurts himself completely, maybe leaving a tiny bit of shell showing.

Pictures (if you can spot him!)

A picture of his enclosure. It’s quite large (moved a few plants around since this picture). But gives you an idea of his table.

Yes, It's very normal that they hide under the dirt. They can make it difficult to find them at times.:tort::)
