Are any of you into breeding reptiles or keeping them as pets?

I love reptiles(duh) as pets. I had a ball python I named butter cup but she got sick and unfortunetly died. I also was watching over a bearded dragon for a friend. He wasn't in good condition when we got him but we got him to a better condition but he died too after a month or so after we gave him back.

leopard tortoises can't compare to sulcatas.

Not as big as sulcatas. They are the LARGEST mainland tortoise in the world. And the third largest tortoise in the world. They normally grow to 110 pounds but 200 pounds is reported for some sulcatas.

I suppose you feed it fruit and vegetables, some tortoises like to eat raw bacon.

Lol we put a whole watermelon in our 7 ft Green Iguana's cage and it ate it in a day... We only cut a little hole in it, but the iguana must've been hellaciously hungry or something to rip the tough rine(sp?) off...
