  1. Sulcata Be Kidding Me

    Little sulcata does not believe in walls...

    3 days ago, I adopted/rescued a 6-month-old sulcata -- we got him from a relative who rescued a pair from a bad home. He is 5" long and about 3.5" wide. He's in a 40 x 24" enclosure with wood sides... and is OBSESSED with scraping at 2 of the corners. Not digging down, trying to tunnel out...

    His old bath verses the new one (please note I use his small bath to change out dried out food or anything he won't eat by end of day. Today he ate hibiscus leaves and flower, pellets and some collard green leaf. I had dandelion in there but he doesn't seem interested I'll have to try other kinds)

    Are "Geen and Orange" plants safe for my Sulcata

    From what I have found, this may a Chlorophytum orchidastrum, a relative of the spider plant. Tortoise Table has no results. Any idea if this is the same plant and if it is safe? Glen

    Water Barriers for Separation

    Hi all, I’m planning a new enclosure for my three male sulcatas (just bought a new house). I have a large 2 acre field that is fenced at the outer perimeter and that I’ve found naturally separates into three subsections internally when it rains due to water pooling. I’m considering trenching...

    Made a space between my garden boxes for Herbie to roam when I am outside. Today is hot and I sprayed it all with water and threw Mazuri around. He seems to be very content.

    Male Russian and Female Sulcata needing rehoming

    I have a male Russian box and a female Sulcata (we think) that needs rehoming. They were both rescues given to me at different times a few years ago, and I haven't been able to give them the care and dedication they deserve. The Russian is at least 8 or 9 years old; the Sulcata might be less...

    Sulcata shell issue?

    So I've had my baby for almost three years now and all was well, her shell was perfectly healthy up until she got to big for her terrarium. At that point I got rid of the terrarium and set up a location where her heat lamp and uv lamp were set up for her to use as she pleases but I'd say a...
