    I Wish Less People Would Not Be Cruel To The Sweet , Lovely Creatures Latey!!!!

    Am I the only one that reads this, you want people to take classes ? We don’t make people take classes to have children !! I love my Mali, I enjoy keeping up for her. I raised my daughter, one day at a time 😂, by the seat of my pants. Although I had great parents, so I did have lessons.

    Can 60 pound Sulcatta tortoise stay outside full time ?

    Mali is about 60 pounds, since the weather is perfect for her, I’d like to put her hide out side. I’ll put in the shade. She’s been going out for the day. It’s not above 100. She only lays in the shade this year. Any one know if she has shade, and her hide is outside, is that okay ?

    I know it's been beaten to death, but here is another sexing question.

    You said your 3 torts are from the same clutch ? Just wondering, are you planning to breed them ?

    Sulcata ate a baby rabbit!!

    Lesley, I know how you feel ! Definitely not as disturbing as your ordeal, but I sent an article about Sulcatta eating, tracking and running down, and eating a baby tern (bird) ! My Mali 🇲🇱 is around 10 years old (rescue) and 65 pounds. Love this girl, I just can’t imagine this happening...

    Baby Sulcata age/size

    I enjoy being able to come here for answers, and directions. Does anyone know why zoo’s keep tortoises together ? They seem to bully each other, and I think that the zoo’s should be up on this ?

    Skin abnormalities

    This is a very contagious disease, I’m praying your guy doesn’t have it. I lost my first Sulcatta at 1 year. If you plan on reusing anything, bleach should be okay. 🙏🏽🙏🏽
