    They are my three older sisters. I also have a younger sister and brother but neither of them went with me to Oklahoma for my father's funeral.

    Wanting a tortoise that will Grow big

    Having a yard is required. During the winter having a heated tortoise house and night box is required. There are a lot of plans and examples of both in the forum. There are several members that have sulcatas in much colder parts of the country and they seem to do alright. I've also seen posts...

    Wanting a tortoise that will Grow big

    I own a sulcata and I live in Colorado. I think as long as you are willing to put the time, effort, and money required to plan for their future needs and space requirements having any species of tortoise isn't out of the question here in Colorado. What species of large tortoise would you like to...

    What Reptiles You've Had, Have, And Want...

    I wish I had spent more time debating about my sulcata. I would have had his enclosure set up before I bought him instead of a lot of panicked scrambling to get him set up properly. I also would have got him from a different source. I agree about the personality, sulcatas are awesome.

    What Reptiles You've Had, Have, And Want...

    I had the same thought when i saw the website but it seems pretty safe. There are a few people on here that have succesfully hatched tortoises from them.

    Yeah I was going to get a russian from there in november but ended up spending that money on toys for my daughter. I have to buy an incubator first but thats no big deal. I`ve been wanting one anyways.

    I was considering hatching one myself from tortstork. My birthday is soon so I may convince my kids to persuade my wife into getting me an egg.

    The elongata was a sweetheart, very friendly and calm. My son's chameleon was a jacksons, they are very fun to watch.

    What Reptiles You've Had, Have, And Want...

    I've had iguanas, a chameleon, a box turtle, geckos, an elongated, a ball python, and a caiman. I currently have 1 sulcata, 4 mississippi mud turtles, and 1 redfoot. I would like to get a marginated, a burmese star, an asian box turtle, a russian, and maybe a leopard. My wife says she doesn`t...

    Meet Stuffy

    We actually are thinking about getting her another tortoise. She did so well with Stuffy that it would be a shame not to get another when it wasn't her fault she lost Stuffy

    Meet Stuffy

    No, I had no idea. I didn't know for sure until a couple days later. I talked to a few of my other neighbors and kinda pieced everything together. My neighbor had no interest in speaking to me about anything including my animals, he wasn't a very pleasant individual and was evicted less than a...

    Meet Stuffy

    Unfortunately Stuffy passed away in mid july. I have been putting off this post because it makes me sad to think about. Fortunately Stuffy didn`t die because of any mistake my daughter made. My little girl was a very good tortoise mommy she always fed and soaked Stuffy. She insisted on doing...
