Hi Bill!

I’m interested in purchasing a radiated tortoise and I’ve been reading you’re the person to talk to for a well started one. Also interested in reading your care sheets. Can you please email me at [email protected]

thank you!

Hi Bill,
I've searched the forum and internet and it seems most people end up getting it via email or private message. My first well started hatchlings arrive next month and while I'm feeling confident and ready to care for this species, I'd love to receive and read up on your specific care sheet for radiateds - hatchlings specifically.

Thank you in advance!

Hello,
I have two Egyptian Tortoises. Both are adults and I believe they are both female. They are approximately 30 - 40 yrs old and are in good health. I am looking to get $2500 obo for the pair. If you want pictures it would be way easier for me if you could email me at [email protected]. Let me know via email if you have questions and want pictures.
