    Very happy to have rescued an 11yo female Golden Greek and 1yo Sulcata yesterday. They were housed together in a 29gal aquarium and only got soaks once a week... So far I’m not seeing any Testudo Herpesvirus in the Sulcata, but my experience with it is zero.

    Not being extremely familiar with Sulcatas and knowing my limits, I reached out @Chrisleone at Hermmini Haven/Garden State Tortoise, and I will be shipping both to him later today so they can have the best chance possible.

    The Sulcata? It has an underbite and needs a beak trim. I didn’t see anything obvious that could have been a growth, but my experience with Sulcatas is limited.

    It looks like the other foot has spikes.
    Not the face

    It's great that you stepped in.
    It's so critical that tortoises get a healthy start in life.
