you described your tort as a "little guy," so maybe it's nervous and that's part of the reason it seems to always go? if that's the case, it can lessen the tamer your tort gets, if that's any consolation.

it's not toilet training, but what i do with my redfoot that helps keep my carpets clean is to give her a nice warm long soak 1 or 2 times a week. any pooping she has to do happens then... can't remember the last time i had to clean up anything brown. i did the same thing with an iguana i had when i was in high school, soak her any time i was going to let her run loose so she'd be running on empty.

as far as pee goes, she only seems to do that once she shows down and relaxes. there are a couple places where she gravitates to outside her enclosure -- under a desk, and in this one corner by an endtable -- so i put down newspaper or those wee-wee pads for dogs, and that takes care of that.
