I have a male Sulcata that I need to find a new home for. He is named Turq and is 5 years old. He weighs ~50 lbs at the moment. We need to rehome him because we are not planning to breed tortoises and until recently (when he started flashing) we thought he was a female. This is a heartbreaking decision and it is not one we have arrived at easily. He is available for adoption to someone that is experienced with Sulcatas and will give him the care and attention he deserves.

Don't give him up because he's male. Male's have more personality, are more bonded to their keeper and simply more fun. I have always preferred males simply because they are more fun. Think this over seriously before you make a decision. I don't breed either, I believe males are better pets....
I lost Bob 3 yrs ago at 125 lbs, I have 2 males now and enjoy the heck outa them. Big Sam is 5 and 40 to 50 pounds. My sister has Dudley who is 20 something (I think) and over 100 pounds. He's an easy keeper as well.

I didn't know that about Males, makes sense though I share my Spike is OBSESSED with me, it's crazy how much he watches me and chases me! I used to think it was only over food but mostly he wants rubs and neck scratches BEFORE he even checks out what I've served for dinner! They are so personable, Jori that is something to consider

I think she has a male and a female and rather than try to separate them, she's opting to find a good home for one of them. I'm with the others. Keep the male and find a home for the female.

I am taking your comments under consideration and discussing with my family. Thank you all. It's just not any easy decision.
