I live in Whittier, California and looking to adopt a juvenile or young adult Sulcata tortoise. Anyone in Orange County, preferably Northern part of O.C. or Los Angeles County with a Sulcata?

I was just reading through those links and they are full of excellent information. About how long does it take a baby Sulcata to reach 30-40lbs?

It varies. Mine is about 3 and weighs about 20. There's a beautiful sulcata @Maro2Bear has that's only 4 but weighs over 70lbs.

Hi Laura! I'm your Huckleberry! :)

I have four large, well started, hatchlings for sale. The smallest one is over 80 grams and the biggest is around 130. Soaked daily, sunned 3-4 times a week, and eating everything under the sun. I hate shipping, so I'd be happy to meet you somewhere once your enclosure is set up and ready. Here is the most recent pic of them, but this pic is a couple of weeks old now.

I would recommend a hatchling of Tom's to anyone.
