    I have saint Agustine grass growing around my house. Is it safe for sulcatas? And if it is will they eat it at a year old? Also what other grasses are safe?

    Try to introduce it with tender young shutes vs. old tough mature grass, but yes, they can eat it.

    I also cut it into smaller pieces for small sulcatas.
