Princess Neferu is an African Spurred Tortoise (aka Sulcata Tortoise) hatched around 2013. These animals are native to sub-Saharan Africa & have become popular pets. These tortoises can live around 70-80 years & can ultimately weigh about 100 pounds making them less attractive as pets as they grow. Princess was found in a ditch in Texas either abandoned or escaped (they are master diggers). She had been improperly cared for in her early years resulting in a shell deformity called “pyramiding”. As part of our educational team, Princess gets lots of exercise, proper nutrition, the correct amounts of sunlight & humidity. Initial poor care also resulted in stunted growth so she will likely stay around 50-60 pounds. Princess comes out for tours only when the weather is warm enough for her.
