Looking to purchase a tortoise from them, just didn't know if they're reputable or not.

What species are you looking to purchase? Why not buy directly from a good breeder?
I was looking to purchase a leopard or a yellow foot tortoise. Upon checking their website they do say they are field collected which I definitely don’t want, and seeing their history, I definitely won’t be ordering from them.

For a well started healthy leopard contact @Kapidolo Farms or @Gijoux

I don't know of anyone breeding yellowfoots. Lots of good redfoot breeders here.

Honestly I purchased several turtles and tortoise over the years from William Gangemi (the owner). Although he had a run in with the law years back prior to opening American Reptile Distributors, he has always done right by me. American Reptile Distributors it is a larger family run business. I’ve met them out at the Daytona show and actually purchased my wife our first two Aldabra Tortoises at the show from him and his other family members helping to run the booth.
