I recently acquired a baby sulcata from a friend who rescued it from owners who had no idea how to care for it. The child of the house had left it in the driveway and my friends picked it up right before it wandered into the street. It was a few hours before anyone even wondered where this precious baby was. They had no idea how to care for it either. I am rapidly learning about tortoise care and housing. Thank God I can forage meals for it, I am currently unemployed and will gradually gather all it's needs. I live in SW TN and currently have perfect weather for the it. I put it in its outdoor habitat I created around midday and bring it in to a shoebox size tote on a reptile heater at night. When outside if he is not basking or napping in the shade it is wandering around grazing. Just checked on him and he was soaking in his water. I have 2 concerns I've only had him 3 days he hasn't pooped yet.... and someone painted or colored w gel pens on its shell....could this be harmful? I think it likes me compared to last home, is that possible? It's almost like his little eyes light up when he sees me, wondering what im dropping off next for him to sample. He is loving the rose petals i gave him today.
