My russian tortoise, Thermopylae, escaped from his indoor enclosure today! I've had him for about six months and he's never gotten close to escaping, but sometime today while we were gone he pushed a bunch of stuff around and managed to knock over a plant and I'm guessing use it to get out the top. Luckily the enclosure is on the floor, but when I went to get ready to go to bed and turn off his day lamp I discovered him missing. I've searched the whole house, every closet, under every piece of furniture, even in the cupboards and I can't find him anywhere. There is no possible way he could have gotten outside. So, anyone have any advice on how to find him or coax him out? Any sort of place they are known to hide? I'm desperate! Thanks!
