    I decided to grown my own good for my African sulcata![SMILING FACE WITH OPEN MOUTH].

    However I looked into tortious supply and the seeds aren't badly priced. I just don't want to pay the $11 shipping for little seed packs. Does anyone else have another site that they buy their seeds from ?

    I have bought for both tortoisesply and Carolina pet supply. Shipping wasn't that good there either. Have you looked at your local places for seeds? Also try amazon or ebay and pick the cheapest shipping rate.

    Try sulcatafood.com. They different types of seeds you can buy and their customer service is great. I think the shipping was free too, but don't quote me on that.

    Check out the premium pasture mix on this site. The stuff is amazing. In the summer it will grow faster than you can feed it out.

    Tyler's "Testudo Mix" is unbeatable though. I would do both.
