    we have had a female sulcata purchased about 12 years ago. She weighs roughly 45 pounds, seems to recognize her name, and spends the summer outside, eating our lawn, with an occasional treat of a small pepper. She comes to the door to be let in in the afternoon, and walks to her enclosure in the garage, and returns in the morning to go outside. Has a most pleasant personality, much more than we expected a reptile to have.

    Hi, and welcome!

    Your picture isn't showing up for me. I'd love to be able to see her. It sounds like she has you trained pretty well! It's interesting about her coming to the door to be let in.
