Default Sulcata picture thread :)

I don't have any but love one when I eventually have to room, their size is amazing and it would be so cool to have one plodding around your garden

Can sulcata mums and dads post pics of their babies and their homes please? From the tiny ones to the huge ones, it would be really interesting to see.

I don't want to be a pain but could you also post age, scl, weight just to give an idea of their growth

can't wait to see pics!

from google

Hello and welcome to SW. There doesn't seem to be many sulcata owners with pics . I saw the pic of your torts in the other thread, are they cherry heads? Smart torts they are

that tort in the pic looks pretty big, i really want some more torts but havnt got anymore space until we sell our house. I really like the look of the pancake torts, does anyone know where i could get any from and how much the pancakes would roughly be, are the same sort of price as hermanns?

wooooo....thats quite abit...best get saving, they seem quite rare.
I had my two hermanns out in the garden the other day and the window cleaners came around, so i tried to secretly get them inside as i dont like too many people knowing about them but they spotted them, they are quite chavish (chavs) if that makes sense, lol! and they were saying they are quite expensive torts arent they, and i was like 'well not really as they are quite popular now' [trying to reduce the risk of them getting nicked] they were saying so how to u keep them, i just said oh well i dont have room here so they live at my mams & i only bring them down on my day off when they can go outside. That was a big fat lie i told them but i was scared incase word got around n they get pinched

I think that's sensible. BCG is always saying don't advertise the fact that you have tortoises
