My tortious was in a a half grass half soil enclosure last summer however I noticed he only went to the soil. He loves lavender so her would go over to the lavender plant dog himself a pit and sit in it. Since he only used the same spot in the soil this year I have made him a full soil enclosure. However he has started acting very strange. I was going to cheak on him and only just found him because a small part of his shell was poking up. As I pulled him out of the soil I found he had buried himself at a 65 degree angle very deep down head first. I later have lost him on many occasions and have had to dig him out with a spade. I am very confused what he is doing. This is his 2 summer with me and he has only had 1 winter with me. His previous owners never hybonated him even though he is 8. So I started hybonating him this year for the first time but only did 4 weekes so that he could get used to it but now I’m wondering if he is trying to hybonate in the soil???
