The skin of a baby African sulcata tortoise is very thick and the legs are covered in dull, spiny projections. Secondly, thick skin and spines are intended for protection from predators but also work as insulation, keeping the tortoise cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Lastly, prominent spurs on the rear legs serve no observable function according to scientists but, from my own personal experience, they wag when they are happy like a dog’s tail.
Sulcatas are the third largest breed of tortoise in the world, surpassed in size by the giant tortoises of the Galapagos Islands and Seychelles. Not only do Sulcata grow very large, they grow very rapidly — up to two and a half feet long and 80-110 pounds or more in 5 to 10 years. On average, they grow to be 36 inches and can weigh as much as 150 pounds at its largest maturation. The oldest Sulcata recorded lived to be just over 80 years old.
