My tortoise keeps climbing his enclosure and flipping himself over, he is also scratching the sides of his enclosure non stop any advice?
Awakened Alex wrote on Tom's profile.
Hey Tom, I liked the baby sulcata care guide you made.
I was wondering do I really need any artificial uvb light in my enclosure? I would rather take my baby sulcata outside for an hour or two for the natural uvb instead.
If I don’t take him outside, how long does artificial uvb light need to be used for?

I ordered a WH from Chris too! When you paid for your tort, about how long did it take until you recieved her?
Bouba has unfortunately passed away I just wanted to thank everyone for their help either way .
