Monthly update: hmmm... The growth seems slow. More outgoing though. I think he is a male? :rolleyes:

Well i'm sure you can have it too someday. Btw, your sulcata in your profile picture looks awesome!!!

I'll post some of their pictures soon, i am too busy lately.

Thank you. I love the goldish tone that’s coming in on his shell. Living here in PA we have long hard winters. Having a sulcata and a leopard to house when there’re fully grown will be enough of a challenge. I’d consider one if I ever moved to Florida and had a lot of land, but I like Arizona:D I’ve been looking out there to move. Now where are these pictures!?

They do well together. They rarely meet. When i have time for hours baby sit them, i'll manage to let them meet each other so they can have a bit of "uncommon" thing in their life.

Turbo looks great! I found that hand feeding a few times a week brought mine outta’ her shell - so to speak. Certainly made her take notice when I came to her & now she will come to me looking for a handout. Her favorite is hibiscus flowers. I think the bright colors attract.
