    Wow! It's amazing how someone obviously called it a sulcata, and the person heard Chicago and never looked back. They must think its a really rare tortoise. "I looked up Chicago tortoise and couldn't find it anywhere!"

    There is a sulcata and a russian in the same enclousre. They got it half right, but totally bad care and pairing. I didn't get the Chicago part, we don't have tortoises native to Chicago. We do have box turtles though. Hopefully someone with a brain will get these two.
