I saw this ad on Craigslist and it broke my heart. I sent an email to the person. I first informed them that the tortoise looks like a Sucata tortoise and not a Desert tortoise. I then told them that the enclosure was way too small and that a tortoise needs a basking light, etc. I gave them some suggestions regarding enclosure, substrate, soaking, etc. I also told them to check out TortoiseForum.org. I do not know how long the poor tortoise can last with the condition it is living in.

This is horrendous. He doesn't even know it's a sulcata. And it's illegal to sell a desert tortoise anyway. And he wants a ridiculous amount for it. Just disgusting. If I had a setup for a sully I'd get it out of there. :(
