I am in the process of possibly obtaining an African Spurred Tortoise (Geochelone sulcata).
I have been reading so many care sheets including Melissa Kaplan's that it's starting to all blur together.
If anyone out there has this species I would appreciate their input, problems, diet, how much do they eat, humorous stories or anything that will be helpful.
Saw stanley and Camille and there awesome.
The one that is coming in possibly through the rescue I contribute to is about 50 Lbs., as of yet I don't know the age. Only his weight, name and that he was used in educational lectures throughout Maine. As far as I know he has been regularly vet checked and well cared for, but when I get him I plan to take him to a qualified reptile vet that I know.
I will be applying for a permit for him as educational.
Thanks for reading my post
