    Lots of people have. From what I have seen the results are often bad.

    Most breeders do not start babies correctly. They mistakenly thing this is a desert species and needs dry conditions and little water. They do not realize they sulcatas hatch at the start of the rainy season and conditions are hot, wet, humid and there are puddles, marshes and green growing food everywhere. Here is more explanation:

    I will NEVER buy from them EVER thank god for this forum! That was very sickening and sad to me to know how all those babies were delivered. I can’t help but want them to be out of business ASAP. [emoji35]
