African Sulcata tortoise Housing:
Due to their large size, housing Sulcata tortoise inside can be quite impractical. Please consider this carefully prior to purchasing. Here at Tortoise Town, we believe the most useful form of indoor tortoise habitat for a Sulcata tortoise hatchling is a tortoise table. We offer a full complete tortoise habitat kit, available here. A reasonable size for a hatchling is 2 foot by 2 foot, however, hatchlings will outgrow this very quickly (at 3 years old they can exceed 12 inches). We recommend purchasing this before purchasing a baby Sulcata tortoise for sale. (baby spurred tortoise for sale)
As the animal grows the size of its habitat needs to be increased. Also, holes can be cut into the bottom of your tortoise table to allow for the sinking of food and water dishes, making them flush with the surface for easier animal access.
Use a water dish in the Sulcata tortoise habitat should be large enough to allow the tortoise to soak in, whilst remaining shallow enough to protect from drowning. For an adult African Spurred tortoise or baby sulcata tortoise for sale, the indoor habitat should be at least 8 foot by 8 foot! An outdoor heated shed or greenhouse is sometimes a better option for an adult African Spurred tortoise.
baby Sulcata tortoises love hot days to graze in the yard!
During hot summer days allow your baby Sulcata tortoise to roam in a predator-free enclosed garden. Because of their large size and grazing habits, these tortoises will greatly benefit to being outdoors when the climate allows it. Ensure that there is adequate shade, hiding spots, and access to a shallow dish of water. A dry grassy area is ideal for your new baby sulcata tortoise for sale to graze. These large tortoises need a sturdy fence that extends underground due to their tendency to burrow. Daytime temperatures can be up to 100 F and nighttime temperatures should not drop below 70 degrees F.
A shallow dish of water should be provided at all times, and a muddy wallow may be used as well. If you’re looking for other reptiles for sale, be sure to check out our sister site. Also offering baby Sulcata tortoise for sale as well as adult and juvenile Sulcata tortoises for sale.
