the size will depend on diet and sex. the males get bigger quicker and females tend to grow slower but can get very large as well. i have a 11 year old male that is 65lbs and a 13 year old male that is 95lbs. 9 year old female that is 45lbs. and a 5 year old female that is 10lbs a 6 year old female @20 lbs. so it verys on many differant things what determines their weight. two things that give a sulcata a real dence weight are to give them PLEANTY of grass/hay i mean give em all they can handle! the other thing is sunlight. yes there is uvb bulbs but nothing is as good as good ol mother nature to give them a nice hard shell and to digest all that grass. so you should expect it to get very large. also you should not let your sulcata graze where your dogs are this is a very bad idea. not only will they get possibly chewed up or worse (saw some bad ones @ the vet last week) but sulcatas love dog poo! its like their favorite thing to eat and dogs have parisites! so it is extreamly bad for your sulcata to be grazing in thoes areas. breeding will come in time. get himher to about 20lbs and go from there. hope this helps
