In stock


We have beautiful African Spurred Tortoise for sale at American Reptile Distributors!
These gentle giants make amazing pets for beginner collectors! They are the most popular tortoises in the pet reptile world. They are also known as the Sulcata Tortoise. These reptiles are very rugged and are experienced in thriving within very rough desert conditions. These African Spurred Tortoises can start off within an indoor terrarium but once they start to grow you will need to move them into an outdoor enclosure that gives them ample room to graze and traverse due to their size! With their yellowish skin and tan to brown shells, the Sulcata Tortoise can easily blend with its native desert environment. Sulcatas are famous for forming strong relationships with their keepers and are one of the most captivating tortoises in captivity.
