The Social Tortoise Series The Social Tortoise Series The Social Tortoise Series


For the next several weeks, the Sofa Cushion Challenge will be hosting the Social Tortoise Series. There’s no denying that most tortoises live alone in the wild. Is that because they are anti-social? Or might it be because it takes so many square acres of today’s degraded habitat to feed just one? Each Friday, the ScC will make a post to social media, exploring that question in this new series.

In case you missed one or more installments, they will also appear on this page, in chronological order.
