African Sulcata Tortoise Habitat and Housing:
Due to their large size, housing Sulcata tortoise inside can be quite impractical. Please consider this carefully prior to purchasing. Here at Turtle Store, 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.
