Lol sounds like a typical male tortoise, especially a horsfield.
You will find most med tortoises are actracted to fingers, and will try to bite, as they think the finger is food:0)
Males will also bonk anything in site, hands, feet, rocks they are not fussy:0)
He is also probably reacting to the sudden change in temps. If it warms up, they want to be out and about.

I agree with Sandy, it's typical male behaviour. Maybe if he is rather butch he doesn't like his name :gasp: only kidding. The other thing with horsfields is they like somewhere to be able to dig a hole to hide away. Is your substrate deep and of a type that holds together when digging. another thought, is that he may want more room that he has now.
