    Prickly pear pads for sulcata

    If you offer Mazuri dry...that's fine... but you'll also have to do a forced soak to ensure you're getting enough water in them...don't need kidney stones! I always suggest using Mazuri in a recipe...with lots of hay/herbs, etc https://www.tortoiseforum.org/threads/tortoise-lasagne.19944/

    Free Sulcata to a good home

    NOOOO! I wish I could take him...but I'm working strictly with Sudans now...and anacondas! Is it safe to presume you meant 25 inches? MONSTRO! is 26 and 96 pounds. I wish you luck with your endeavors!

    Sudanese versus non-Sudanese babies

    Females are hit and miss. Brad had 60-100 pound females...no larger! I'm checking on this F1 herd. Again, MONSTRO!'s mom was 189 pounds 9 years ago. She's in the foreground of this pic.

    Sudanese versus non-Sudanese babies

    First...their carapace is more prehistoric...the area we call growth lines are more like cuts in the shell...no white! Their extremely individual in their growth rate...and it always seems that there is one that outgrows everyone early. For Tom, it was Gargantua! I had one that I had since...
