Frankie’s Tortoise Tales teach us about the ‘mythical sulcata ram.’ I hear @sammyKaep7 is pretty good. @Kaepernick7, Sammy ever try a sack?
Frankie’s Year of The Ram continues.
I see a lot of discussion about sulcata ramming.
Both male and female sulcata ram. When they want to. Seen it.
Keepers with younger sulcata from hatchlings to a few years old really don’t notice ramming. When a sulcata is young ramming looks like hiding and sounds like hissing.
As a sulcata get’s older things happen and a sulcata owner will wonder, “Did that sulcata just ram me?” or “Did the sulcata just give me a love-tap?” For the medium sized sulcata a ram is more like a bump or a forward jump. Owners think, “Oh, I just scared him.”
When a sulcata gets big….well there is no mistaking when a big sulcata rams.
Never stand in front of a big sulcata when it rams. Just don’t.
There are signs. Indicators. Big White Flags. Don’t ignore them.
And never, NEVER, take the bucket away.
