    Greetings all

    It’s been a hot, muggy and very wet Summer here on the East Coast with our area about 10-15 inches above normal for rainfall, maybe more. With Hurricane Michael barreling up the coast evdn today, mid October, it’s MUGGY hot and wet with bands of rain pushing through.

    But..our Sully is loving it all - especially the mud, wet and humidity levels.

    Here’s Sully enjoying last night’s rain.

    Sully looks fantastic. Getting bigger by the day:). I love his shell and your pics definitely capture his personality. Keep the pics coming.

    Sully's sister is doing wonderfully as well. My males have been mounting her, so maybe Sully will be an uncle soon:):)

    Hey lance, I don’t know how often you check the forum, and judging by the inability to reply on your baby sulcatas for sale post, I’m gonna assume you’ve already sold out of sulcatas, but i wanted to know if there was any chance you still had some. Thank ya

    Greetings all

    I havent posted many updates here on Sullys official thread. But the big day arrived again yesterday, moved the Sully monster back outside for the 2019 Summer. Our hot/humid weather has started, gone are the snow, sleet and freezing temps.

    Almost missed a milestone as well - Sully turned five this week and is about 75-80 pounds.

    Enjoying a shady spot in the garden during the heat of the day.

    Another nice sunny day here in Maryland. Once sleepy head Sully emerged from her night box, it was time to munch on this season’s first nice bright red hibiscus flower! Yeah. Dandelion, mazuri, a few corn husks for good measure.

    Unfortunately - no pix of the disappearing hibiscus. :-(

    Another lunch snack for our Sully.

    Dandelion/Chicory, Kale, Opuntia pads, and a nice Aloe sprig.
