    Generally, Celina, you are absolutely correct.

    But Aldabras are a bit different in that they do very well in pairs. Not only that, but Aldabraman breeds them, and he has a whole herd.

    Look through more of his posts..they are very entertaining, and also educational. You'll see how well these beasts get along.

    ~ Yes, he has. He has always seemed to be destined to grow that way, seems to get more higher as he grows and ages.

    We had already find out this person was a troll. If you look a it’s other posts you will see every one of her post is made to make the original poster angry but also there was a certain page that has been deleted by this person that showed it was clearly a troll. It showed a picture of it’s baby sulcata but toddrick had found the image which was an image that was taken from google and been used in many sites. This person said this picture was in fact a desert hermann and was a specie no one had ever seen before and the cherry on top it was called hermi (because it’s hermann ).

    If you look, you will see that I wrote that post on Feb 24th. At that time we had not yet ascertained that the person was a troll.

    “Only about 80lb” :D

    Only someone who keeps Aldabras would regard that as small :D

    Glad to see my favourite looking so good :)
