Potty Training

Manzi is the only potty trained animal (besides myself) in my house. I have decided to potty train both Maui and Hercules.

Maui has already been getting the idea. I hold her on the couch and scratch her, then every 15 minutes place her on the perch that Manzi flies to in order to "go potty." Maui got the idea and would go potty, then step back up on my hand. Now I just need her to show me that she needs to go, like Manzi does. Manzi will either show me he needs to go, or he will just fly to the perch on his own.

Hercules will take a different method. He only goes potty 3 - 4 times per week. I heard sulcata tortoises can be trained by placing them in a shallow bath of warm water. I do still soak him sometimes in warm water and he does usually go potty at that time. I will put him in the bath every evening when I get home from work. I heard this may take a month or so for him to no longer have accidents. We'll see how it goes.

So far, it has been three days and no accidents. It seems to be going well.
