    Best Breeder Burmese Star

    Well, I am honored to be on this list! By far my favorite tortoise. I have some eggs cooking now but I also have some holdbacks from last year that are pushing 100 grams or so. Some just over, some just under. Super smooth with rock hard shells. I also have some larger ones available. Feel free...

    Burmese star tortoise price

    I am just glad I can sell my babies directly and demand a higher price for them. Smart buyers don't mind spending a little extra for rock solid animals from REPUTABLE breeders. I see people selling Burms produced by someone else with the egg tooth attached!. I see so many irresponsible breeders...

    How do you know if a breeder is reputable?

    Let me know if you would be interested in getting some Redfoots from me. I literally have some hatching now and I have some yearlings. Tom has some of my Platynota he purchased from me as babies so I am sure he could vouch for me. PM me if interested.

    Sulcata x redfoot hybrid

    Danny Danny, I have 3 adult males "reppards" I think that name is cooler by the way. lol If you are incubating them for female I would be interested in a few. Please keep me posted.

    OK, Back to the Ploughshares.. All I want is 2 :) I wonder if I am mostly fascinated by them because I cant have them? Something about those big domes..

    They sure grow fast!

    Tom, my females that produced your babies didn't produce until 8 or 9 years old if I remember correctly. I would be interested in seeing how young they can produce. Its amazing the different growth rates I get too. Some explode and some are just slower starters. One of my females that you have...

    That time of the year. :)

    Hey there Dan, I do keep them outside year round unless it gets cold and wet.(below 50 for a few days in a row) I think I produced babies when my females were around 9 years old. That is actually my smallest laying female. I have 5 other ones that are larger . She is a good girl though and...

    One day incubation hatchling!

    I was digging up some redfoot eggs one of my females layed yesterday and it appears one of them hatched! Lol Ok, I guess it was just pure luck that she layed this clutch on top of one already incubating in the ground :) Pretty cool regardless!!

    Caramel albino redfoot

    I was lucky enough to see is as a baby. My friend Doug produced it in S Fl. I was pissed when he sold it. lol

    That time of the year. :)

    I had a premonition 16 years ago when I bought my hatchlings. :) I was breeding Indians at the time and decided to bypass the Sri Lankens. :) I decided to take the long haul and its so much more rewarding than buying adults. For me anyway.
