Glad Timmy was reunited with his owner. I have a friend who has a sulcatta that's somewhere between 120 and 150 pounds and pushes their backyard furniture around for fun.

so sad. I have a 35 lb Sulcata that can open gates and screened porch doors with his feet. They can be sneaky. If the gate isn't locked, he will open it.

I rehomed my yearling sulcata to my friends kid as a birthday present. Helped him set up its outdoor enclosure and gave him a list of foods it can and can't eat. The kids 8 and its his first reptile apart from the anoles he's caught in the past. His dad will be helping him out a lot - know the guy well enough to say so.

I remember reading this thread when you posted it a while ago Rob, it's quite sad to hear this giant passed away.
