Overview
Most large tortoises are popular with turtle enthusiasts, but sulcatas are undoubtedly the most beloved of all. Given their impressive size, gentle personalities and attractive markings, this should not be surprising. Unfortunately, many people acquire sulcatas without first learning about their needs, which often leads to frustrated keepers and neglected tortoises. As when caring for any animal as a pet, keepers must learn as much as possible about the biology, behavior and ecology of the species, in order to provide them the highest quality of life possible. Begin that journey inside, by learning about sulcatas, their place in the world and how to provide them with an artificial habitat that meets their needs. The author, Ben Team, is an environmental educator and author with over 16 years of professional reptile-keeping experience. Ben currently maintains www.FootstepsInTheForest.com, where he shares information, narration and observations of the natural world. When not writing about plants, animals and habitats, Ben enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife. Covered in this book: - Acquiring - Anatomy - Behavior - Biology - Breeding - Captive considerations - Daily care - Description - Diet - Ecology - Enclosure - Environment - Health - Husbandry - Interacting - Internal Anatomy - Lighting - Maintenance - Monitoring - Myths and Misunderstandings - Phylogeny - Taxonomy - The ideal environment - Water and Humidity - What you'll need .... and much more
