    Hi guys so I recently was offered another sulcta tortoise from an owner who is moving and can't keep her I have one of my own it is a baby and the one I was offered is also a baby my main concern is That they'll fight a lot so should I take the offer or should I say no because I did increase the little guys Inclosure a lot so he can definitely hold 2 torts easy so should I take or leave it

    Yes. They should be kept apart for quarantine anyway and because they don't do good in pairs. Do you have the room to house two large sulcatas?

    As long as you have the room and are willing to set each one up separately you should have no problem !
