Digging with back feet is how they dig nests. That seems to suggest she is trying to lay eggs. Does she have deep substrate (10-12”) to dig in? Often they will refuse to lay eggs for months if they cannot dig a suitable nest...
Hi!!! And thank you for the response .
My tortoise is a full grown big butt sulcata.
She doesn’t need substrate anymore. She does have some in winter months but she lives outside and comes in to take a bath. Then it’s back out to her shed. She does have some orchid bark in there but throws it everywhere to get comfy. I totally agree that she is trying to lay something but it can’t be an egg as we don’t have a male tortoise ... any other suggestion would be greatly appreciated!!
