I just became a proud owner of sulcata turtle three days ago. There is a big chance that it is a girl. I can't be sure for another year. I have named her Miss Warning... Miss Tornado Warning. Why the strange name? Well, she is gentle but when she gets happy she leave a trail of mass distruction. Oh this sulcata loves to bask in glory with the sun. You see she was rescued and has been in two homes. Well I'm tearfully happy to say she will never have to move again.
Maryjane, give your tortoise more time to adjust. It really takes a couple of months for a tortoise to settle in and become really comfortable in its new environment.
My boyfriend bought me a Sulcata Tortoise this year for Valentine's Day. I named him Chester "Buggy" Puccio. I love him so much. But he has this little problem of peeing when I pick him up. I dont know if it is because he has figured out that if he does that I'll put him down, or if he's marking his territory or something. Can anyone tell me why?
My wonderful boyfriend got me two African Spurred tortoises for my birthday and I love them! One is named Gus Henry and the other Oscar Donnatello they are very lively for being one of the slowest animals on the planet. They are awesome because when I turn on music they will actually bob their heads to the beat!

Kui & I was on our daily walk when a man asked to take pictures of kui which almost everyone does. Well that man was from the Midweek newspaper in Oahu.You can see Kuis picture all you do is type in your search bar Midweek in Hawaii and look in the section marked windward side. Aloha

I just bought my Sulcata Tortoise a couple of weeks ago and I named it "Pancake". Right now it's around 3-4 inches and I am having trouble in feeding it. Pancake only eats Clovers and bananas. Pancake's enclosure is 20 gallon tank with garden soil as its substrate. Is that advisable? And how can I get it to feed on grasses? and How long should I let the Heating lights of its enclosure on? thanks!
