Sulcatas and leopards can be kept in nearly identical setups, the chief difference being water. Sulcatas don't require a bathing pool, given that they don't typically soak, though I have had one or two that enjoyed a mud bath under a running hose. Leopards drink copiously, however, much like red foots do. Humidity should be kept low and both leopards and sulcatas should be kept on well drained soil. But leopards will enjoy a bathing pool in the shade.
