If you are looking for a sulcata tortoise for sale then this is exactly where you need to start looking.

Sulcata tortoise care
It is a mixed blessing to be in a position to provide sulcata tortoise care. It is both simple and specific at the same time, so following the rules is essential. The rules of caring for sulcata tortoises can be found in our reptile care section. That being said, here are a few basics for your review.
- Two of the most basic needs for proper sulcata tortoise care are humidity and lighting. Start on the right foot by acquiring both your heat lamp bulbs and UVB light bulbs from our reptile lights and heating supply category.
- The humidity issue is the easiest of all tortoises since sulcatas originiate from a harsh climate. This means that some fluctuations in humidity are acceptable and as long as you are not keeping them in muddy and damp conditions then the tortoise has everything it needs.
- The sulcata tortoise diet is also very important and starting your baby off with the correct nutrition is essential. This means that you will not need emergency veterinary care down the road from issues due to malnutrition and metabolic bone disease.
So get your products in place and have your enclosure set up before purchasing your new pet. This way the pet owning experience will be easier on both you and your new sulcata tortoise.
Keeping and caring for tortoises as pets is thought to be by many similar to growing Bonsai. It is both a calming and enjoyable practice that will last you for a very long time. Tortoises enjoy interacting with their keepers and show both affection and recognition. With a little bit of time and care you will have a lifelong companion.
