    Sulcatas should not be kept as pairs. They’re very territorial, scrappy and good at bullying. Please keep them separately if you get two. If you want to breed then introduce them to mate and then part them again.

    I recommend you read the TFO care guides and compare them with your setup.

    They're written by species experts working hard to correct the outdated information widely available on the internet and from pet stores and, sadly, from some breeders and vets too.
