This handy book is about the care and feeding of the African Spurred Tortoise (Geochelone Sulcata)in captivity. When we remove these lovely creatures from their natural environment, we do them a great disservice if we do not use an authoritative source about their needs, which are much different from the more common furry pets. This book provides the answers we need to keep them properly fed, housed, and healthy.

This book is a must have if you own a sulcata or are considering one. I was considering one until I read this book. Sulcatas not only get huge,they like to ram things.This book is an excellent reference and covers behavior,climate,breeding etc. I suggest all people considering a sulcata to get the book before the actual tortoise!!

This is a great book! We've had tortoises for years, and I had waited a long time to buy this book. Wish I'd gotten it earlier! Fun to read, but also very useable, necessary information organized in a great, way to read. A must have if you're even considering owning a Sulcata! Thanks, Dave in Colorado!

Good basic starter information, but it's pretty out of date. There are alot of new requirements needed for raising sulcatas. If your looking to raise torts, check out, there are alot of experienced people on there willing to help.

Really informative book. It literally explains everything you need to know about your sulcatas and also has a section that introduces you to other herps. Loved it!

Great book for buying a sulcata at a pet shop not knowing much about their background and becoming quickly well educated as it covers literally everything you can think of! Must read if you're buying or even if you already have a sulcata

I got tired of reading tortoise forums will the abundance of conflicting information out there. This book has just about everything you'll need to know for all the life stages of a sulcata. It would have earned 5 stars if it went in depth just a little more in a few aspects such as describing growth rates in a little more in detail, but I'm happy to have this book would buy again if I lost it.

Needed a book about caring for the new family pets. This book was informative and easy to read. It was straight to the point and hit most areas I had in question. I wish it could have provided a little more detail about behavior but I am beginning to wonder if there not a vast amount info available about sulcatas in general. Overall, this book is exactly what I needed.
