Cohab Beardie and Sulcata Tortoise?

Postby SebwithBiscuit » Fri Jun 28, 2019 11:03 am

I have read many controversial things about cohab and I'm kinda in a mix here. I'm a new bearded dragon owner(his name is Biscuit) and my mom wants a sulcata tortoise. I was wondering if they could share the same tank. If so, is there anything I would need to change in the tank to make it compatible for both of? I also know that the tortoise is going to grow up and out of the tank. Thanks for the suggestions! :D

Hi there, it may not be a good idea for a few reasons. A beardie is curious about anything on the ground and at some point would try to eat the droppings of the tortoise. And the other end of the problem [ no pun intended ] , the beardies tail or droppings may look like something for the tortoise to try out. So unless you had an enclosure the size of a small room it would not be a good idea and even then there would be potential for parasites or disease to be spread from either of them eating the droppings of the other. There could be other potential problems as well .
