She is growing like a weed. I didn't get her early enough to prevent the bumpy shell but all of the growth she has had since i've had her (1.5") has been all smooth. It should take her upwards of 15years to reach her size potential. I am looking forward to her larger size but I'm sure there will be times I'll regret it too. Just ask Terry about lugging large guys around in wheelbarrows!

hi im terry and i dont actually keep sulcata as i feel one large species is enough for anyone lol.as to useing wheelbarrows i have made a wooden sled for my largest girls ,recently had to go to bristol for a weeks work and my poor wife had the leopards to lug back to the shed at night.the largest weighs nearly 40 lb so Christine puts her on the sled and drags it up the slope of their enclosure at night.im sure she was pleased to see me back home i cant imagine why.
