Does anyone have any tips on discouraging sulcatas from digging in certain places? I don't want to stop them from digging (as if that would be possible)just stop them from digging in certain areas and encourage them to dig in others. My current issue is that I live in Florida and the "soil" here is loose, dry sand and my sulcatas keep digging burrows that end up collapsing so I hope to get a large amount of top soil and clay to fill in part of their enclousre for them to dig in and want them to dig there and not the sand.
