    Approximately a month ago, I acted as the middle man between Will and a friend of mine who was new to tortoises. We bought a leopard tortoise from Will of Kapidolo Farms, and the entire transaction went smoothly. Will kept us up to date with the process, including tracking the tortoise himself. A delay came up with the post office, and Will immediately called me to make sure I was also aware of the situation. Despite this, the tortoise came on time, packed safely and neatly in moist sphagnum moss. The hatching was also active, had an extremely smooth shell, bright-eyed, and eating out of the box. I'm not at all surprised that the hatchling was so healthy considering the level of care Will puts into tortoise keeping, as well as the knowledge he draws from.

    Will is also one breeder who keeps his hatchlings in a hot and humid, closed chambered environment, which I highly advocate. I would not hesitate to buy from Will if I were a first time buyer, and I'm sure I'll end up doing business with him again.

    I just ordered and received an Indian star tortoise from Will, truly a stress free process! Will is super knowledgeable and was willing to answer all of my questions, he made delivery date changes quickly and always responded promptly. I would hands down recommend him to anyone in search of their next tort. I will most certainly be in touch when I add to the group.

    I received my first order of food supply from Kapidolo yesterday. Quick turn around time and everything was exactly as described. I try to buy local but his prices can't be beat. He even threw in a couple extra sample items. I really like the way he puts feeding tips on the bags for each individual item. Will surely be ordering again in the future.

    I also have received food items from @Kapidolo Farms . I had never previously used dried food items as a garnish or top dressing for my fresh food, but when I added the rose petals from Will, you could almost see the tortoises smiling!

    Food items from Kapidolo Farms can't be beat. Fresh, uniformly processed, aromatic, and packed with instructions on how to feed. Great source for dried plants!!!
