    i have a juvenile sucalta and right now she’s just chilling on my chest. She’s making popping noise every few minutes, is this normal?

    Greetings

    Young and old sullies make all kinds of noises for different reasons.

    Since you are new to the Forum - take a read here on the Sulcata species pages.

    Good luck, and yes, you can hold your tortoise.
