    Help with sick sulcata

    Is there ANY way that some animal (reptile type) organization that can take on this disease ? We’re getting close to “end of days” crap. Can someone have the power to put a moratorium on tortoise’s hatchlings. There are so many rescues to be adopted ???

    Do you regret not going bigger?

    I think Sulcatt, I’m very fond of them. I never think about getting another, they DO NOT like to be around other tortoise. I can’t stand the thought that she would be worried about sharing her home. The head bobbing is just such a violent response.
