    I have an 8 yr old male sulcata weighs about 52 lbs very slight minimal pyramiding. Healthy as can be. Was vetted and dewormed. Needs more space than i can offer him at this size. Hes a blond color. Very handsome. Im looking to trade him for a young redfoot tortoise since they dont get as big. Turbo is a male most definitly. If anyone is interested please pm me. I live in San Antonio Texas hes too big to ship. Must be picked up.
    He needs an experienced owner with lots of tlc. And room to roam.
    With of course a secure fence or enclosure.

    I can't take him but I will be in Austin the weekend before Thanksgiving. I live in the New Orleans area and would be happy to help transport him if you find him a home on my way home or in my area. Just let me know if I can be of assistance and you would have to drop him off to me in Austin.

    I live in Thibodaux LA. I would be more than happy to home your male sulcata if Theresal would be willing to transport it to New Orleans I would be excited to adopt him. I have a 1:3 group right now and will be moving to an acre of property next year so I can promise a top notch home.
    Do you think we can make this happen? :)

    I will give him an excellent home. They have a large shed with heated pig mats and heat lamps for the winter time. Please PM me if you think this would work.

    I'm getting excited to meet Turbo. I'm glad that he is going to a home with some room to move around. Just a few more days until I pick him up and then he will be on his way to becoming a bayou tortoise. Maybe he will be a Saints or LSU fan too. LOL

    It stinks that I will be picking Turbo up RIGHT BEFORE a cold front :( I was hoping he could enjoy a yard full of grass during a warm spell when he first arrived. But nonetheless I'm sure he will enjoy his new home. I'm stoked to get him!
