Age and size for Breeding Sulcata Tortoises

by Gwen
(Florence, Arizona)

I have a very large (about 70 lbs) Sulcata Male and recently got a smaller female (about 10 inches). How old does she have to be to mate with him? And, is it dangerous to her to put them together when he weighs significantly more and tries to mount her. I'm not sure if she is even old enough.. so I seperated them for now. But it would be so fun if I knew she'd be safe anyway to let them be together.. Thank you
