Hello everyone!

My name is Melissa, and I'm coming to this Forum with my new sulcata tortoise Dexter!

I have received my early Christmas present!. Today is day 3 with my new tortoise, a baby shipped from a breeder in Las Vegas, NV. (From www.tortoisesupply.com) Never caring for one before, I have quite a few questions that has brought me to this forum.

I will be bringing my concerns and questions to other areas of the forum today, as I am anxious to get things right for him. Glad to see such a great support area. :tort:

Here is a picture of Dexter!

CUTE! He looks just like how mine was when I bought him. Nice colors as well! You definitely came to the right place. I had mine for over 2 years when I found this site and thought I knew everything I needed to know, however was I very wrong. :)

Hello and welcome. Tyler is a friend of mine and a good seller.

Here are a bunch of threads from me and a couple of other members that I lumped together for convenience. Hope you find something helpful in there.

Thank you all, and Tom for the threads. I feel like I've spent all day watching Dexter and picking up on his habits. My fiance laughs at me for starring at the terrarium all day and getting excited when Dexter comes out of his hideaways. :rolleyes:

:D Sounds like Dexter already has you under his little foot. :D He should be a gift that keeps giving (and growing) for many years to come. :p :D Welcome. :tort:
