My baby sulcata has a half log hiding spot in his tank and he keeps climbing on top of it why? and when he flips himself over should i help him back upright?

if it falls onto his back you must turn him over immediatley!! the longer they are on their back the higher the chances of death. this is extremely dangerous and you should definietly help him.

it's just what they do.

Any turtle will climb on top of things, logs, rocks, etc. It is perfectly normal, it's just where his little hang out spot is. There's no need to worry or remove the log.
