It is nice that you can keep Sue updated - it must have been so hard to part with her.

Hope to see a start to finish thread when you start making her new enclosure.
It was hard taking her Sue really loved her.
im going to start work on the house tomorrow she has the free run of are garden so she is having a great time in the sun lol

Thanks for all the comments she has a great personality and getting on great.

Any one want to take a guess on her age? My little ones are 2 so I think she might be about 6?
You could be right with the six/seven year old guess. If the tort's were Leopards she would maybe be about 8-10 year's old that size, Sulcata's as you know are bigger, so yeah maybe about 6.
Need someone to say were wrong.

You must have been very surprised expecting her to be the size of the others and then instead getting one so much larger. She is nice looking.

I think it's very possible that she is 3 1/2. Hard to say without sizes. I'm guessing around 10". The two smaller ones seem a little small for 2, but it's all subjective. Diet, genetics etc...all play a role. I know of a sulcata that went from 30 to 48 pounds in only a year. I have two 8 month old leopards that are just over 4" and 250g already.
