      DeanS, Looks like you know a bit about Sulcata's. I have a one year old that is only 2.2 ounces or 62 grams. From everything I am seeing on the forum, that is really really small. Do you have any idea?

      hello Dean
      I am getting a new baby sulcata tortoise and i need some tips from a professional.
      And i have some questions if you do not mind
      What do sulcata tortoises eat ?
      How many times do i feed them ? (baby tortoise)
      Can they eat carrot because i have a carrot garden at the backyard
      how tall do they grow ?

        A big sulcata can be over 200 pounds...depending on the bloodline! If you do everything right...you can expect him to be 100 pounds at 10 YO...a girl could reach 75-80 pounds in that time. That's between 25 and 30 inches long, 20 inches wide and 18-22 inches tall!

        As for the carrots...in spite of what some people think...I offer them (grated) about once every three months as a treat.

      Hi
      You where pointed out as possibly having experience in transporting large tortoises. I have a sulcata that is approx. 150 lbs and I need to figure out how to get him from CA to SC. All pointers will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
