Rescue Me ID: 15-02-14-00058Sulcata (male)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult

    Bo Scarlet and Babette, we were told they were females when we rescued them but once they started flagging on a nearly daily basis, they were obviously males. They came from the Covington area. A man had attempted to rescue them from a little and very old pet store that closed down. Unfortunately, he placed the 'not girls' in an aquarium with two other species of torts that did not share the same diet and none of the six torts had any room to move about. The man was unaware of the humidity needs of Sulcatas and that caused some shell issues for both and respiratory issues for Babs. I tried to change their names but they had already 'stuck' ... (Read More)and turned and followed me when I called them, so we added Bo to Scarlet and Babs kept his name. Their is no sunken shell issue with either, and a lot of Bo's pyramiding has smoothed out. Babs still struggles a bit with some of her scutes becoming brittle, but has not required respiratory infection shots for over one year. I estimate their ages between 5 to 7 an they weigh around 20 to 30 pounds respectively. Although Sulcatas are known to be solitary males and aggressive in regards to their habitat, the 'not girls' prefer to be close to each other and share their food even though it is not necessary. They wanted to share a hide so we had to enlarge it instead of each having their own. I assume this behavior stems from their early years inside aquariums. When Babs had to made vet trips, I wound up packing Bo along as well to avoid the frantic pacing which occurs when they are separated. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-14-00057Sulcata (male)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Adult

    Big Duke, is 67bs. and came to us via a friend who runs the nature center at Hocking College. Duke was found wandering the streets of Columbus October 2013. The OSU student who found him attempted to find the owner or a pet store individual willing to take him in. She ultimately took him to the ODNR office, who could not find a herp rescue with space to take him in. He was going to be euthanized but fortunately for Duke, Dave was there for a meeting and took him back to the nature center - where he proceeded to tear his small enclosure apart before picked him up. Since he survived on the mean streets of Columbus, we figured he had True ... (Read More)Grit, hence the John Wayne name we gave him. He is a gentle giant and shows no aggression to the two smaller male Sulcatas we had rescued the year prior. He has pyramiding on his shell which has smoothed out quit a bit due to a proper habitat, diet, and overall, correct husbandry practices. His shell will likely never return to normal, but the sunken areas and peaks have at least improved substantially. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Ohio
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Ohio if they match your IifestyIe. Reptiles are interesting animals. Many types of reptiles and amphibians are kept as exotic pets. Snakes, turtles, iguanas, and frogs are popular examples. Keeping a reptile as a pet is a tremendous responsibility. Many reptile owners discover that owning a reptile is not as rewarding as they had hoped. Reptiles do not bond with people the way mammals can, and are sometimes neglected for that reason. Also, many people purchase young, small reptiles without being aware of or prepared for their eventual adult size. For example, Burmese Pythons are often bought as pets when they are about two feet long. However, many do not realize that Burmese Pythons are among the largest snakes in the world, with adults averaging 23 feet in length and weighing hundreds of pounds! There is now an established invasive population of Burmese Pythons in Florida due to pet owners releasing the snakes into the wild. Scientists believe these huge snakes will keep spreading out and will one day inhabit one third of the United States! Some owners are not prepared for the long lifespan of a pet reptile. Some species of turtles are known for their extreme longevity. Iguanas can grow to be six feet long and then live for 20 years. Sadly, many captive reptiles suffer from dehydration and kidney problems, poor nutrition, and all other manner of neglect. A person who is truly ready to commit to a reptile pet can alleviate some suffering by adopting an animal rather than purchasing new.

    The word Reptile comes from the Latin Repere, which means to creep. In the Florida Everglades, there are over 20,000 non-native reptiles such as Burmese Pythons due to people releasing reptile pets into the wild. The largest Burmese Python in captivity weighs over 400 pounds and is about 27 feet long.
