To quote ewam: you should change the substrat.
They life in north africa (map -> attached file), in a kind of desert. So you can use a mix of soil and sand. Or cocos coir for the young sulcata.

You know what size it will reach, don't you?

I have a leopard but they live close to the same area so they take pretty much the same care. And the photo you put just showed a weird shape. And I said coco coir too I am pretty sure that's the best there is for substrate for sulcatas. And I do know how big they get and why does that matter to this thread. This is a baby sulcata in the pic so the sand would irate the eyes.

Great looking baby. Make sure to read Toms care sheet in the sulcata section. Definately change the bedding, I like to use cypress bark. Also make sure he/she gets plenty of sunlight and soak everyday in warm water to help with hydration. Welcome to TFO!
