Upside down

I have a 2 month old Sulcata turtle that we keep in a wooden box at night (2ft wide x 1ft high x 2ft deep). The sturle started flipping itself upside down.. several times a day.. we bring it outside to roam at least 2 times a day.

Any suggestions ... is this normal

Sulcata Maniac Flippers

Completely normal. Eventually he/she will have to learn to flip herself over, without help. Words of caution, do not place water dish near where she/he can flip over. Just to be safe.

Also it is very good you let your tort roam around alot. They need the exercise, part of the reason they flip so much is because they need to be roaming.
