These tortoises are so loving but they do require a lot of care but it is worth it! My tortioise actually ran kinda fast for a tortoise but she was amazing!

We have been raising a female yellow foot for about 15 years, was about ten years old when we received her. Has been a great experience. She lives outdoors year round except few very cold times(below 25 degrees F.) She has a house with a radiant heater and moves back and forth as needed to stay warm. Loves watermelon. Never been sick. Good pet for the South.

Hi all, I acquired my baby sulcata about 1 month ago. He was hatched about 2 months ago. Just last week I acquired a baby leopard tortoise which hatched about 1 month ago. I have a 4ft X 4ft tortoise table whcih is split in half to house one of each baby on each side. But I have urges to lift the plywood in the middle to see how they get along. I will do more research on this if it is at all possible during their first year. I know that as adults this won't be possible because of their size & aggression differences. Take care and take good care of your lovely torts.

Aloha!! I have a 4 year old female (as far as we can tell). She weighs in at 21 pounds. She is very precious and personable. Thank you for the info so I may better care for her. We live on Maui on an acre and she is a happy girl. And yes, VERY STRONG. Enjoy your tortoises!

Aloha again! Be careful what and how much you feed them. Their shells will pyramid and cause other shell problems, both top and bottom, some requiring shell surgery. ENJOY!

I have three Leopard Tortoises(babcoki). One is three years old. I purchased her as a hatchling in 2003. She weighs about seven lbs.now. She is friendly and very beautiful. She will eat out of my hand. The other two are yearlings out of two different clutches. They were handled from a very young age and also are friendly. The bigger one has a four by six wooden pen I built for her and the other two stay in a 35 gallon aquarium for now. I started with Golden Greek tortoises who are also very beautiful but very hard to keep because they get upper respiratory infections very easy. I love my tortoises very much and hope to breed them in about five years.
