    My sulcata always has some sound recently. Any problem?

    I found something for you recently. Don’t use a fog humidifier to add humidity. The problem is the fog humidifier will mist not only the water but everything in the water including bacterial, virus and minerals. Those things will cause lung problems if it is breathed by your tortoise. If you...

    What’s your best recommendation to purchase?

    I feel Sulcata is very hard to handle and challenge if you need to keep him inside. He needs large space and he will damage any barriers or walls you set for him. One of my friends has a large yard and he build a small house on the yard for his Sulcata. But the wall of the house is always...

    My sulcata always has some sound recently. Any problem?

    If the tortoise has runny nose or it is hard to breath by nose (it may open his month to breath very often) or it has some saliva remains around its month, there may be a problem with its respiratory system. Otherwise I am not worried about it too much. But continue to do a close observation
