Hello guys, :)

I know this might sound strange..I own a small (cute too!) Kleinmann's Tortoise or Egyptian turtle as some people would call it. And recently he (it) has been trying to climb walls! (I'm serious)--of course unsuccessfully
And also walks by any door (sometimes the wall) and hit his shell towards it back and forth back and forth no matter how many times I move him (it) away. He is a male and I own him for 3 years now and he (or it) was at other family's house for like 7-9 years before that and this is all the background history I know about him (okok it) so far. So does anyone know why is this strange behavior happening lately?

Thanks in advance guys :) I :mrgreen: All .

I'm not sure, has there been any other symptoms? Changes in diet/appetite?
