Die Spornschildkroete (Geochelone sulcata, Miller, 1779) Konsequenzen fuer Haltung und Aufzucht



Die Spornschildkroete (Geochelone sulcata, Miller, 1779) Konsequenzen fuer Haltung und Aufzucht



Schildkroeten im Fokus1: 25-34



Geochelone sulcata, MILLER 1779, lives in the driest areas of Africa. Succulent plants and dry weeds are the main food source and typical of the barren vegetation in their natural habitat. When keeping them in captivity, extreme climatically conditions should be considered, and additionally their enormous size and power. A large size greenhouse facility, including free access to an outdoor enclosure, is the perfect way to keep spurred tortoises. Under the conditions described and considering the special aspects this species requires, Geochelone sulcata is not a problematic tortoise and breeding success follows relatively easy.
