Juniper the Redfoot came to stay with me for a while, and unless she changes her ways it will be a short while. Juniper is petite and perfect. Her keeper and I met here on TFO here as he was looking to rehome the tort. He came Wednesday and I guess I passed muster because he brought Juniper today at noon. After some conversation I offered to foster the tort until he can put together an enclosure at his parents property. The keeper said it's female because her plastron was flat, not concave. I say it's gonna be concave cuz it ain't flat. So in keeping with today's fashion we will refer to Juniper as they/them.
The story you are about to read is the truth, the whole truth and nothing including the truth. Well...this part is...the 'K' man brought Juniper today at noon. We talked for 5 minutes and he left, I put them in the pen and went to fix some food for her. I was probably gone 4 minutes and when I went back outside the damn thing was gone. Oh hell...be still my heart. I set up that pen making it escape proof, but Juniper was gone.

Everybody knows I build pens using cinder block,for Sulcata, I figure a single row of block would hold a Redfoot...especially this small tort. They are 7" scl and I didn't weigh them, but not a pound.

And between noon and 3:30 they escaped 4 count'em FOUR freakin times. And found on their back 3 times. Gonna make me have a heart attack.damn... Each time the escapee went back to the same spot and climbed out. You know how we always refer to Russian tortoises as escape artist? They ain't got squat on this athletic little beast. They climbed a 2 high solid wall of block. My Sulcata Mary has just started climbing over 1 high block, but this little red beast scales it like Spiderman. Serious

Soooo.... THE situation with the owner? Does the owner expect to have their tort back (Junpier) but it got lost within 4 minutes of placing him outside?
