Please, do your research before you bring home a sulcata tortoise.

Like most exotics, these are not easily-kept pets. These tortoises get VERY large, VERY quickly, and they can live well over 50 years. They DO NOT hibernate in winter so you must keep them warm, feed them, and clean up after them year-around.

And please don't breed your sulcata tortoises.

Reptile rescue organizations nationwide are overwhelmed with rescued sulcata tortoises. Breeding more tortoises only adds to the problem. If you really want a sulcata tortoise, consult a local reptile rescue organization FIRST.
