    10 years he'll have his yard, crap in his yard,) (you'll toss it over the fence for the neighbors to be curious about) and he'll be soaking himself. You will simply be dumping and cleaning is water/soaking dish. HaHa, all your hard work at success and you'll become a nursemaid for a tortoise. Shows you what you know. LOL.

    Too small for anything bigger than a baby. No lid to keep the humidity up for a baby.

    Short answer = no.

    Hello. I have waited about 7 years for this day. Today is my first day as a proud parent of a Sulcata! No name yet. Had a good soak and ate a great dinner too.

    Thank you! I was observing the eating process and when finished, turned right around, looked at me and did that. I like to think it was my tortoise's way of saying 'delicious!'
