I have six sulcatas that are four years old. They have all live together since I got them. One is considerably smaller than all the others. Should I separate him, I guess it's a he, or put him in an environment with one other for company? They all get along.

You should definitely separate them, whatever you see the tortoises don’t get along especially Sulcatas they don’t live in groups.

Hello and welcome. Where is Hammond?

What sizes are they? How have you been caring for them?

I would worry that the smallest one may be injured by the larger ones (accidentally). It might not be a problem if your tortoise yard is quite large and they're not all crammed together in a small pen.

I'd be interested in seeing pictures of the tortoises in their yard. Your avatar picture intrigues me.

Welcome, the smaller one might be the one being bullied more and not getting his fair share of food.

What ind of enclosure are they in. If it is a very large yard it may be okay to keep them together but it would have to be quite huge.

Hello and welcome! How did you end up with 6 Beautiful Sullies? Any idea what your male / female ratio is? I’d love to see more pics!!!
