Hi Shawn, and welcome to the Forum! So your two sulcatas have pets, huh? Usually it's cats that have the upper hand in a relationship. But I know what you mean. You'd do anything for your sulcatas! How big are your tortoises? Still indoors, or big enough to live outside now? I only have one sulcata - Dudley. He lives outside.

they are 2.5 years old I was told when we got them one is about 8 inches and the other is around 5 they are in an outdoor pen that I have created for now. we recently acquired them I wanted to get one for my wife as she has wanted one for a while now. When I went to look at these with the intent on buying only one I couldn't leave them in the care of the person that had them. The larger of the two has a respiratory infection and they both have MBD severe for their age.

That's too bad, but it's all good now. Be sure to take a look at our sulcata section and read the threads pinned at the top of the section. Tortoise-keeping has changed a lot in the past few years.

ohhh yes it has!!!! I have been lurking for the past few weeks reading. I have noticed most of my knowledge is outdated from when I was taught. I was taught by a family friend when I was growing up and into my 20's.
