My baby sulcata enjoying some outside time 🌱
Your baby is really cute. I am concerned with the way the shell is turning up. I have been told in the past this is due to not enough Humidity and sunlight.

I became aware of the problem a couple weeks ago, and immediately corrected it. I’ve never raised a tortoise, so I thought 60-70% humidity and daily baths would be okay- but when I realized he was showing signs of pyramiding and that it ISNT what normal growth looks like I built him an enclosed habitat. He’s been in there for about two weeks now, has his humidity between 80-95% at all times (on top of The daily soaks) and his artificial UVB bulb was replaced with natural sunlight 3-4 times a week :) he’s loving it and I can already see minor improvement with his shell
