    I would love to, but I do not use facebook. Been FB free for almost 3 years now. Are your videos on youtube?

    @ALDABRAMAN - Just out of sheer curiosity... what is the average monthly upkeep cost for an adult aldabra?

    ~ Once the initial infrastructure is in place, very little at our program.

    Be kinda useful to see a chart depicting costs of upkeep per species at different intervals of development. But there I go thinking again. Lol

    ~ I can say that our initial infrastructure costs are the biggest, barns, irrigation, fencing, etc......

    ~ Not sure anyone can accurately provide that data, many variables, etc.

    Without a doubt. I've already "shelled" out nearly $1500 so far on just one tortoise. I admire the level of committment that large establishments such as yours must have. Kudos brutha!

    I worked with Aldabras years ago and it is my dream to own one someday. I currently have Sulcatas. I have a perfect piece of property already. I live in Southeast Florida, would it be possible for me to visit your farm and talk with you about your setup. I am looking to own just one as a pet not get into the whole breeding thing. I am planning on doing that with Sulcata. Thanks, Mike
