    frustrated (too many sulcatas) is the link to their adoptions page. They require a two page application, a care and feeding class, and you must provide pics of enclosures. The site has better info than I can give

    frustrated (too many sulcatas)

    no, I am not upset with breeders. They are tort lovers, and I realize many are friends here. I'm upset at these folks that pick up the babies because they look so cute, they don't do their research, don't care for them properly and the poor tort suffers. I was not lashing out on breeders...

    frustrated (too many sulcatas)

    We have a terrific Tort. rescue near us that focuses on Sulcatas. A few days ago they had to post that they can't take any more sullys until spring because they have gotten so many in the past few weeks; yet I still see a ton of ads for breeders selling sullys. It just makes me sick. If...

    Adult eastern box turtle

    If the eyes are red, it's a male. Is shipping something you would consider? If so I might adopt, Eastern boxes are my favorite breed so sweet, if not, I might have some family in NH that would be interested, let me ask.

    Tortoise throwing a temper tantrum

    My Russian pitches temper fits. If she wants something, doesn't want something... she protests the cats, a lizard that came into her outdoor enclosure and took up residency.... and she will literally toss the whole enclosure until I correct whatever grand injustice has been thrust upon out...

    Sulcata tortoise needs home with complete setup

    that makes me so sad. I love reading the adoptions section because it's great to see how the community helps each other. It's really great when torts find a good home! But the world takes all kinds. :(

    anyone have connections to the Central Texas Tortoise Rescue San Marcos, TX ?

    ok its a long shot, but I think I may have found my long lost box turtle Soo-Nipi. Here's the story: He was my first. I met him in a small town pet store in New Hampshire, and it was love at first sight. I was only eight, but I knew my heart. I was an awkward shy kid, and 'Nips was my best...
