Sulcata Tortoises

Sulcata tortoises are very funny reptiles.  They play, I mean chase, small pet dogs(I witnessed it happen) Pet ones will chase lettuce in their human friends hands.  When they poo, it sounds like their guts are coming out.  To investigate strange items, they bite them,  as my dog Milo found out the hard way). They like strawberries.

Sulcatas, in the wild, live in the African Savannah.  They eat grasses; and are eaten by leopards, eagles, crocodiles, lions, and hyenas.  However, it is rare since their shells are so thick.
