Turtle tunnel

by NN

My secada tortoise is app. 5 years old. Suddenly she has dug a tunnel and is sleeping there. We had a turtle house for her until she dug the tunnel. We live in Hawaii so it cannot be that she is anticipating cold weather. She has not done this before. Any ideas as to why she dug the tunnel?

Your tortoise is trying to cool off. In the wild, they dig to get to a cooler level.
