I should have started a new thread and titled it SO's incredible adventure part 2. Here he is again, getting into more trouble. This time he's climbing the little retaining fence that was put into place to keep him away from the little mulberry trees while they grew. I had some guests who were bringing me a young, found sulcata and we discovered SO, the mountain climber. This tortoise is going to be hell on my second-hand lumber fences. I can see he's going to require much stronger fencing when I have to move him to his new pasture.

Ah. Well the good thing is, he seems to be showing signs of a positive progress. When he does start to get into mischief that will be an aggregating but good day. tankers. They crack me up when they get into mischief.Actually BO is pretty infirm. It's taking me a very long time to get him strong again after learning he was calcium deficient. For about 4 years now he has dragged himself around the yard. It has only been this past summer that he is finally starting to be able to actually lift up his body and walk on his feet/legs instead of sliding along on his plastron. So, because it's so hard for him to move around, he doesn't get into mischief.
