Hi, I recently acquired a desert tortoise who I believe is about ten years old. It's a boy and his name is Rocky. Although he's my first tortoise, I'm somewhat familiar because my ex-boyfriend has three males. Rocky has the whole backyard, places to dig, lots of weeds to eat, shade and sun. But he is obsessed with climbing the wall and lately I find him flipped over almost every day! For the past week it's been bad. I am home a lot this summer, so I can check on him throughout the day, but I'm afraid to go anywhere for any length of time for fear he'll die. The place it's happening is in the sun. I've blocked off most of his access, but need to find a more permanent way because he still climbs the boards and flips. Most of the time he is not even trying to right himself when I get on the scene. Maybe he's tired out, or maybe he's just waiting for me to save him. I check on him every 2-3 hours, so he's not ever out there too long, but geez, I can't keep doing this. I start work next month (teacher) and don't want to worry about this anymore! What can I do?
