As a basic rule, tortoises don"t have the mental capacity to it is in potty trained. They have, as much as i know, short term memory, which would make potty training them impossible. Tortoises generally poop once eating or soaking... Sometimes they will occassionally poop while walking, however not too often. What they perform respond to, if you desire them to concerned you, is food. Yet it isn"t a guaranteed science. Basically, a tortoise definitly doesn"t have the same mental capabilities as a dog when it pertains to training.

If friend do gain a tortoise, you can build a tortoise table instead of letting lock roam the house. I don"t let mine out uneven I"m an altering their enclosure, and then ns usually put them in an additional container. They will certainly taste everything you have actually lying about on the floor, also if the isn"t edible... Everything to castle looks prefer food
