All of the Turtles & Tortoises we sell are captive bred either by us or one of our select quality breeder partners. Certain breeders specialize in different species. If the animal was not bred by us, it was hand selected for health and appearance and has been placed in one of our quarantine areas for a minimum of 30 to 60 days to insure the animal is healthy and active before we make them available for sale. As a result of the quarantine process, our baby tortoises are a bit larger than hatchlings.

Listed below are the species we normally carry at different times of the year. While we occaisionally find a great deal on some of the more exotic species, we usually will offer them for sale at the Reptile Expos and shows we attend, mostly in Florida. We instead concentrate on the species that make great pets. We pretty much leave the exotics up to the specialized collectors. That being said, if there is a certain species you are looking for and you do not see them here, please contact us as we do have some unusual critters in our pens and are in contact with specialized collectors and breeders all the time.
The tortoise is the third member of the Chelonian family – along with turtles and terrapins. Tortoises are a member of the family Testudinidae which contains approximately 16 genera and 40-50 species, depending on the source. Tortoises are exclusively terrestrial and are found in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and on the islands of Madagascar, the Galapagos, and the Aldabra Atoll. They inhabit warm areas ranging from rain forests to deserts. The tortoise is closely related to the tortoise's marine cousin, the sea turtle and are found most particularly in the southern hemisphere where the weather is warmer for most of the year. Most species of tortoise are diurnal (active mainly during the day) but in places where it is very hot throughout the day, tortoises will often venture out to find food in the cooler dawn and dusk periods. Most species of tortoise, but not all, hibernate during the colder winter months particularly those species of tortoise in the Northern Hemisphere. Tortoises must have an empty stomach before they hibernate and therefore tend to go through a period of starvation beforehand. Tortoises come out of hibernation when the weather begins to get warmer again.
