Touring his territory

Spud, touring his territory. He’s a captive bred red-footed tortoise. He spends most of the winter inside in his tortoise table, but whenever we get some warm weather he comes out to survey his grounds. He spends the warmer months outdoors, looking for snacks. Whenever I’m working in the yard he has to come and see what I’m doing. Mostly he’s hoping I’ll drop something for him to eat. When he’s active I put grapes or berries around the yard for him to find.
