Hello everyone! Im a new to owning this Sulcata tortoise, but before purchasing I did do research to ensure that I was not hurting a tortoise in the process of me just wanting a new pet in my yard. Hes 7.5 years old and he weighs around 50-60 Lbs, hes 19 inches wide, 23 inches long. His name is Gamera. he started getting this dry flaky patch on his neck and wanted input on it. I will be adding a few pictures to this thread of him. Thank you for any help or if you see me doing something wrong, pls let me know. I feed him 2 times a day while he gets to graze upon my grass in the backyard. I give him repti-calcium, he does poop it out in a weird powdery form as if its back in the same form that it started. His droppings are solid. I have him in a burrow i made for him that i will also be showing in the pictures to come. In the winter i plan on building him an insolated home to keep him warm.
