African Sulcata tortoise for sale – baby Sulcata tortoise habitat:
Due to their large size, housing a baby Sulcata tortoise inside can be quite impractical once it is full grown. 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 Sulcata hatchling is 2 foot by 2 foot, however, Sulcata tortoise hatchlings will outgrow this very quickly (at 3 years old they can exceed 12 inches). We recommend purchasing this before purchasing an African Sulcata tortoise for sale. (baby spurred tortoise for sale)
As the baby Sulcata tortoise 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 African Spurred tortoise.

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 hatchling Sulcata tortoise to graze. These large tortoises need a sturdy fence that extends underground due to their tendency to burrow.
