NEW African Sulcata Tortoises Joined The Global Wildlife Family

In May of 2011, 4 African Sulcata Tortoises were donated to the Center by Dr. Landry and Dr. Schultis.  African Sulcata Tortoises are native to the semi-arid Sahel region in Africa.  Sulcatas are the third largest species of tortoises in the world.  Sulcata tortoises also grow very quickly, they can easily reach 18" in shell length and up to 70-100 pounds in weight!
