I wish I had room for a sully too! They seem so awesome but thinking logically, I would not have enough room lol!
Yeah, way back 22 years ago when I told my ex husband I wanted a tortoise, he of course wanted a sulcata. I had already done the research and said NO WAY! :) But they are super cool.

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is doing good! Today I went to the store and picked up some things for Phoenix's enclosure. Since it is now fall, I have decorated his cage to fit the season. And before everyone comes at me, yes it holds humidity fine. On top of the mesh I have a plexi glass cover with custom holes for the lights and uvb. :) Also, I know that the thermometer in the picture is not reliable and that is why I also have a different one it just wasn't in the cameras view. And also he does have coco coir as his substrate.

Hello! Today phoenix weighed in at about 127 grams. He's getting bigger by the day :) One thing that he's not liking though is the cold weather. The days that he gets to go outside are limited due to cold temperatures 🥶 it's been like 30 degrees out in the morning!

Hello everyone! I haven't updated you guys in a few days so i'd thought I'd let you know how Phoenix is doing. He is doing great. Eating great, pooping normally, and I have noticed that he is a lot more active lately which is a good sign. If you seen one of my previous threads I did say that he made a whistle noise while he was eating once and I was a little bit concerned but it hasn't happened since then and hasn't shown any weird symptoms so that's a good thing! I haven't weighed him in a little bit but i'm sure he has gained some more weight!

I haven't been very active on here lately! I have been so busy with work and a family crisis. Phoenix is doing great though. He has been eating great and gaining weight he is about 140 grams now! I hope everyone is doing well. I'll try to update you guys again soon!

Hello everyone! It's been a while. I sadly had a family member pass away a few days ago. Phoenix is doing great though! Happy late halloween guys! I'm not sure if you can tell in the picture, but in the back there is tape on the walls! I'm happy to say that we are finally redoing the pet room and pheonix will be getting a 7 by 3 foot enclosure. Originally it was only going to be 7 by 2 but we included it in our plans to make it bigger. I made Phoenix a "tortoise cozy" hahaha! I saw some on etsy and I did not want to pay the $20 so I just made one myself. 😂 Anyways, I hope everyone is safe and healthy. -Saleena&Phoenix

Hey everyone! It has been a minute! Pheonix is doing better than ever and luckily warmer weather is approaching within the next couple months so he can get outside more. He's gained a lot of weight and is growing fantastically. I hope to try to be a little bit more active on here when time allows. Things on my end have been a lot better. I hope everyone is doing well!
