I use plastic garden edging or cut in half water bottles to round out corners. They LOVE corners! They also love to get into cracks so if there is a space between something and a wall, they will turn every which way to get into it, sometimes flipping over in the process. Fill in cracks and round out those corners or like above, put barriers so they can not stand all the way up. Good luck with him!noahbdh said:He's got plenty of food in his enclosure. He flips only at the corners. I'll try putting something there. Thanks for all the tips
I had this same problem can I see a picture of your rampTry "baby proofing" the environment so-to-speak. When a tortoise is tipped, their organs smash up against their lungs making it fatal for the tortoise to stay in that position for long periods of time. Make sure the water dish sits level to the ground for easy in and out access and so the tortoise doesn't have the opportunity to tip over. Also, tortoises will try and climb out or climb over things they can see over/out of.
Take my experience for example - In my Tortuga's tank she has a hallowed half log as a hide. One day she decided she was big enough to climb to the top of the log, which ended in her being tipped upside down squirming to be placed right side up. Luckily I was there to lend a helping hand, but she was determined to get to the top because she could see it. So, as a solution I offered her a ramp to the top of the log. Not only did I solve the problem, but I offered her a little more room to roam in the process.
Keep in mind, if you don't want them doing it, they probably will anyway. Try offering a solution to both you AND the tortoise.
Hope this helps.
Not sure if that person is still active but for my half log i half buried it partially so its basically a hill. The sides of the log have substrate packed so it slopes up and has more gentle angles for climbing up and down. Also a smaller fall for the tort.I had this same problem can I see a picture of your ramp
