Hi, My name is Kim and I live in the Mojave Desert. I have kept tortoises for more than 30 years. I currently have 5 tortoises of 3 different species and am expecting 2 eggs to hatch in the next month! I have a 9 year old African Sulcata that I got when he was 2 weeks old, a 20 year old Desert tortoise, a 10 month old desert tortoise, a male and female Russian tortoise breeding pair that are about 12 years old and they have 2 eggs from their first clutch getting ready to hatch. I look forward to sharing tips and pics with other tortoise folks. We are a unique breed of people, but we have some cool pets!
