Hey grandpa turtle you seem like a good guy to know. Is it common for tortoises sold by forum members to go for 30-50% more than online dealers that are well reviewed on the forum? I don't see why... Maybe it's inexperience on my part.
Hi Grandpa Turtle,
I have a sulcata that is two years old. For most of the summer I let him live in my back yard in Apachee Junction. I have a 40gal tank that I can move him inside if needed or is there a care for outside I can do for him? I like him outside because he has more room to move but I have noticed he is not moving nearly as much as he was last month.
It appears from all I have seen that you are much loved and well respected. Please provide, if you will, any important knowledge for a first time owner of a Sulcata. She is about 15" and will arrive tomorrow in Michigan. I want to assure the easiest transition and best possible environment for her.
