Let's get some pictures posted, so we can ID him for sure. Care, even lights and temps depend a lot of the species he is.

Most folks seem to find it easier to place pictures into either photobucket or tinypic and then post them in here. How are you trying to do it?

Okay you do have a sulcata hatchling. Go to the sulcata section and look at the top of the page above the regular threads. Those are stickies. Read them first, then post in the sulcata thread any questions you still have or clarifications you may need.
