Normal behaviour
by: Emily

Hi! You may be right in that the temperature may be too hot, but in my experience this is perfectly normal. Some tortoises really like to dig, just as some really like to climb. We put half a log in Cassius's tortoise table and he loves climbing up and over it, though he still likes to try and escape up the side sometimes! Hope this helps!
