    Stump Sulcata Tortoise eat pet burp

    This guy is out of control sometimes with the eating. Tell me what you think in the comments. His favorite giant and office buddy pets him while he's eating.

For timeline purposes, I got him...

    Adding a Sulcata to the family...

    I don't know if it's because I'm really missing my CDTs while they hibernate, but I'm obsessing over adding a Sulcata to our family (and so is my 7yo son, who is equally obsessed with becoming a Herpetologist). Anyway, we currently have two CDT loves, I have raised since they were about one and...

    Can someone tell me how old my two sulcatas are?

    Hello all. 4 days ago I had purchased two small sulcata tortoises. Both of which are about as big as a base ball. I bought them from a close neighbor for really cheap because I am his neighbor, who in hindsight isnt a very good sulcata breeder. He had shown me most of his sulcatas, from...
