Meet Bam. Bam is a type of tortoise popularly known as a Sulcata. I’ve been lucky enough to be Bam’s provider for 15 years now. When I first got him, he fit into the palm of my hand. These days, he weighs over 60 pounds. Bam has taught me a lot over the years, and I’d like to share some of his wisdom with you.
