Today, I adopted (more like rescued) a Sulcata that is about 1 foot long. It has extreme pyramiding on it's shell. I do not know the history of it so I do not know what type of living and eating conditions it has been exposed to. I currently have 2 other sulcatas that I have owned since they were hatchlings. They are on a diet of various grasses and hays as well as cactus. They outside in the Florida sunshine everyday. These two little guys do not show any sign of pyramiding. I guess my question is what can I do (if anything) for the Sulcata I just got? I will put him on the same diet as my other 2 but I wasn't sure if there is anything else I should do. Any suggestions???
