    Hello! Me and my girlfriend got our sulcata tortoise last December. He’s too small to tell the gender so the name is Sheldon, Shelly for short, so that it could work for both genders. We were told that Shelly was 4 months old when we got him, so he is approximately 6 months old now but we don’t know for sure. We live in Oahu, Hawaii. Below are pictures we have of Shelly! Thank you!

    Have a friend that has sullies that lives on the Big Island. Ideal weather conditions. Humidity is perfect! Unlike California, I am dealing with 17% humidity in my room as we speak
