Sulcata Tortoise




Sulcata Tortoise
Geochelone sulcata

We have captive bred Sulcata tortoises in a variety of sizes for sale at incredibly low prices. The third largest tortoise in the world, this African reptile attains a large size and is an extremely popular pet reptile.

Baby sulcatas are nothing short of adorable, with shell lengths of 1.5 to 2 inches. These tortoises have wonderful personalities and thrive in captivity. When you buy a tortoise from us, you automatically receive our 100% live arrival guarantee.

Sulcata Tortoise Care and Information
Rest assured that all sulcata tortoises for sale on our website are always captive bred, and never wild caught. They’re also herbivorous, meaning they eat plants, fruits, and vegetables. Babies will chase and eat the occasional insect. Focus on offering them high fiber (and low protein) diets.

Also known as African spurred tortoises, this fast-growing species will readily breed in captivity once they reach adulthood, which takes several years. Their scientific name is Geochelone sulcata, and they’re of the family Testudinoidea, and the genus Centrochelys.

Native to the Sahara desert, these tortoises prefer drier habitats, and shouldn’t be kept in humid environments. They’re docile pets that never fail to impress onlookers. In fact, whenever someone sees one of our adults, they immediately want to know how they can buy one.

Sexing Your Sulcata Tortoise
Please feel free to request a male or female tortoise (or any combination thereof) when you order our medium and adult sized reptiles (hatchlings are indeterminable), but please be aware that we cannot guarantee the sex. However, we can guarantee that someone very experienced with reptiles will attempt to select the specific tortoise(s) you are requesting.

We charge a flat $44.99 for overnight delivery to your doorstep, regardless of the number of reptiles, amphibians, or inverts you buy. Please read our shipping information page before ordering.

When you buy a Sulcata Tortoise from us, you receive our 100% ironclad live arrival guarantee. Please read the details of our guarantee before ordering.

Because we responsibly offer reptiles for sale online (as well as amphibians, tarantulas, and scorpions), we reserve the right to delay your order upon the fairly rare occurrence of unacceptable weather conditions. This is strictly for the safety of the animal(s), and you will be notified by e-mail if this does occur.

All tortoises for sale with shell lengths of fewer than four inches are sold for scientific or educational purposes only.
