Hi! don't know what kind of home u have, if he's in a glass 'tank' or vivarium he will always try to climb. They don't understand the concept of glass so aRe always trying to reach what's outside! I have a wooden tortoise table, and he does climb but the wood is less 'slippy' and he has more control. Hope this helps!
