The African Spurred Tortoise continues to be the top-selling pet tortoise in the world. From a small tan hatchling with wide, alert eyes and a ravenous appetite, these wonderful tortoises quickly (in tortoise terms) can become backyard giants. They grow very large and incredibly heavy with needs that outweigh many keepers' expectations and abilities. Despite their very large size as adults, these tortoises can inspire individual keepers and entire families. By keeping them properly, children and adults learn respect for a living animal and its needs. Daily routines spring up around this new and exotic pet that instill thoughfulness and responsibility. We know that you will find this book helpful whether you are caring for a single hatchling G. sulcata or managing a large group of lawn-mowing giants. This updated edition (2005) features all the pertinent information for sulcatas and also provides readers with care information for Redfoot Tortoises, Yellowfoot Tortoises, Leopard Tortoises, and Russian Tortoises. A wealth of information is included in this exciting new title.
