    I feel like I'm late joining these forms since I've had my little sulcata since March. I'm a new tortoise mommy and I decided to join here and hopefully gain a lot of advice on raising my baby in the best environment possible for a long healthy life! This winter is our first so I'm a tad nervous, but I'm excited to have these forums here just in case.

    Hi and welcome - better late than never!!
    There is a good caresheet for sulcatas under Species Specific which will give you lots of info re diet temps humidity etc,
    I also found the Beginners Mistakes thread useful to stop me making the same mistakes as others and the Enclosures thread is full of great ideas. But you will learn lots here from many experienced keepers - I learn something new everyday!!
    www.thetortoisetable.org.uk is also a good website to help you find tort safe plants. Looking forward to hearing all about your tort and maybe even seeing some pics?
