Hey guys.

From all the research I have done, all I can come up with is;

Sulcs don't need UVB when kept outside
Young Sulcs can be kept on a turtle table
They eat pretty much ONLy HAy?
They get huge, relatively fast
They don't like too much water
They need a pen that will keep them from dogs and racoons
They will almost definately outlive me if I care for them

Questions;
Will they burrow if I keep them outside?
Will they burrow under a fenced pen or come up where they went down?
About how much hay will a baby eat in a month?

That is all I can think of right now. I am really looking into getting me one of these giant things. Just trying to understrand it all fully.

Thanks guys!

Your Friend,
