    Just have to keep your fingers out of the way on this one! 175 lb sulcata has a big and strong mouth.

    Just for perspective, The wall between the sulcata yard and pond is 18" tall.

    Clare, that tortoise looks like it has some pyramiding. You should try not to feed it as much protein and give the tortoise more calcium. The tort does look cute though :)

    I don't think it is pyramiding, some times it is normal.
