Ok, remember no verbal attacks lol.

You have a large Sulcata 75 lbs or so. He has done a lot of the stuff we read about, escapes yard a time or 4. He flooded his heated and insulated shed and got my homeowners canceled and I was laughing as I was typing that memory. One evening I went to make sure his doggie door was closed and kinda put him to bed but he was gone!!! Oh sh*t! My flash light was dead, so I ran to my friends house and he got our other friend and lights and we started looking...his shed was up against a 4 foot chain link fence.and there he was side ways between that fence and his shed. Freakin stuck. Oh my! I wish I'da thought about pictures because Bob had pushed until he was about in the middle of that fence and his shed and neither guy could reach him, not from either side or the top. So in the dark and cold and in their pj's grrr, we hadda pull up about 8 feet of chain link fence. But gosh, a trip down memory lane, sorry.
My question
In your will you give your tortoise to whom? Someone you love or maybe a family member, or some know it all here on TFO??? Really? Think about it.
Or, do you will your big destructive dinosaur eating and pooping tank like being to an enemy? lol think about that! lol

I might give my tortoise to my cousin's children (I do not have any kids) but if I ever care for children they will probably inherit it. For now I try to cherish every moment with Kiwi, even though we will spend the rest of our lives together! 😂

Mine is going to @Ray--Opo who continues to build a tortoise/Sulcata haven!
Thanks Mark! I think 😂😂😂😂😂
If I can ever purchase the lot next to me. I would definitely expand my tortoise family. From what I have seen on TFO. My backyard would be fine for 2 sullies. Don't know if Opo would approve.

Of course, @EllieMay is younger, has Sulcatas & lives in Texas where everything is bigger! Maybe off to EllieMay!

I would love to find someone on the forum to take Lola because then I would know he was going to someone who loves torts so he would have a good home, but obviously it would have to be someone in the UK.
Sadly none of my family are interested :(

Half my family think I'm weird anyway for having an animal " that won't ever love me back" like a dog or (lets be honest) SOME cats lol

I can only hope one of my son's or grandchildren move to a warm climate. They all live in Michigan. That wouldn't be fair to Opo to live in Michigan.
