    Mary's adventures part 1...

    This is very important for everyone to see and hear about how destructive they are. Anyone who is interested in housing especially cute little baby sulcatas; beware! Your beautiful flower gardens and lawns will never be the same.

    Mary's adventures part 1...

    Mary Knobbins/Knobbins is a handful. Your stories tell us just what sulcatas are capable of. It's scary Maggie! And she's only 40 lbs. At full growth they can reach 200-250 or more??? What then? I think we all hope and cringe that we don't run into your troubles. Glad Tortuga Mike is...

    Mary K (warning..long and boring)

    Maggie your stories with Mary Knobbins needs to be told over and over again. People need to "get it". They are bull dozers and have a mind of their own. They aren't for just anyone. People have got to understand it takes a huge commitment and for a very long time. Thank you for sharing. I...

    This may be a silly question but could my Tortoise get Covid-19?

    Good thing they make Ivermectin in an animal paste.

    Sulcata doesn't want anything to do with his house

    My sulcata got down right angry when I introduced him to his new 4X4 insulated Tom's night box. He went on a destroying spree. He was 5 years old. I guess he was spoiled. We had built him an insulated shed that I could stand up in and realized it really wasn't economically good. We had a...

    Newbies and Sulcata tortoises...

    What I get are those that out of the kindness of their hearts, adopt these tortoises that have been abused. It's idiots like the ones mentioned above that abuse them, then think, "oh well", don't care; the get rid of them and then folks like Maggie and so many other rescue them; these...
