Yea, we don't take Kronk for a ton of car rides, but he's been out at least half a dozen times and I can't say I've noticed and extra pooping from him. Maybe it's just the big guys, or maybe we just didn't travel far enough.

I've lived in Oregon for 15 years...until about 5 years ago I went back to California to see Yvonne and do tortoise stuff several times a year. 1600 miles roundtrip. I'd take turtles and tortoises with me and bring others back etc. I always brought a cat and omg, brought a oh crap I forget, Y what was that blue bird? I took this extremely loud bird from Yvonne and he lived with me, until I drove him to Texass. Don't travel in a small car with a loud, obnoxious thing that you can't hit. I brought 3 turtles and my cat back from Texass and got held at point of entry to New Mexico for trying to smuggle 'exotic tortoises' from there. I had 3 deformed 3-toed box turtles.
Anyhow, Sulcata seemed to me that they would start pooping within minutes of leaving. Other tortoises not so much. Box turtles are poopers too. I normally keep an immaculate car, and have been known to come to a screeching halt on the side of the road tossing poop out the window. That's when I started using a wooden box with a lid to transport chelonia...oh and AB is not Sulcata so he's NOT a pooper...

Going to town this morning, will get some iceberg....thanks
Sorry. I just didn't want to say it because I wouldn't want new members to think it's ok to feed iceberg. I've also used sour cream on kittens if I need to get medicine in them. I hope it works as the medicinal poultice AB needs...💕

I'm not above using herbs on a really sick animal. I'm just careful about it.😊

I drove my friend and her 85lb sulcata to the vet one time.

It was an hour to the vet, then an hour at the office with all the manhandling that entails, then an hour home.

Sweet boy never peed or pooped the entire trip!

he must have been impacted. There is no way a sulcata is in a car for at least two hours (both ways) without pooping???
There is just no way???? Maybe he was dehydrated too???? No way ... no way???...... nnnnooooooo waaaaaayyyy.
(all said with love)🥰🥰🥰

I agree, impacted just like AB. I keep an immaculate car, and frankly, it's had a lot of Sulcata poop in it. Big Sam took second in a photo contest and won a professional photo session last year. Not only did he unload in the storage box, but he knocked the whole thing over and crapped on my carpet, then crapped in the studio and again in the car going home. As far as I'm concerned, he's not going for rides in the car anymore.

now THAT sounds about right..🤕🤕
And after reading all of that... I am soo sorry to read it all!!! He was being a booger that day!!? You are right next time let him walk along side the car on a leash!!!! (In case of the laws in your state))..
Maybe...just maybe the other person did NOT have a sulcata??? Maybe it was a tort that looks like one though... Tom told me about that kind of tortoise (it looks a lot like a sulcata but isn’t??). African or ..?.....

I have just read this entire thread and it’s quite hilarious. I don’t have a tortoise, I have a three toed boxie. He likes to poop in his soak. You of course have put yours in a soak after his many enemas ?? Or is that a bad idea?
