You need to try early in the morning before she warms up, or in the evening after it cools down. The most difficult thing will be finding her while she's not moving. Use a stick (broom stick or rake) if she's in the tree. Most likely if she is cold she won't run, atleast as quick. You should be able to get her to climb onto the stick and bring her down.
If you don't find her before it warms up, she will find a sunny spot as soon as it does. If you can't catch her, I'd get a net big enough to get her.
:Trying to get my Iggy some good old natural UVB, we put her in a cage outside about a month ago. Well, a cage that she had been housed inside for many months with no escape, she escaped from outside in one day!! Anyway, she's not completely tame, and we are having a difficult time catching her. A neighbor saw her today, and she ran up a tree. We climbed up the tree, and she only climbed higher until we lost her again. Any ideas on how to catch an Iggy that doesn't want to be caught? She's obviously staying near by because the neighbor said she saw her run from our yard. We put out a plate of her favorite fruits to try to tempt her, but even if we do see her eating it, she'll just run away when we try to get her. Any ideas? Maybe some ideas on a safe trap we could make for her? I'm at my wit's end here. The good news is with being loose for a month, she looks quite plump. I think she may be stealing my tortoise's food from the back yard...lol!
