    Hi everyone! This is Bailey, our new baby sulcata. We've had "her" for about three days and are just in love. She is about 6 weeks old and has one extra scute on the left side. It kinda looks like a little button to me ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1505676991.829960.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1505677009.985352.jpg ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1505677040.130104.jpg
