pet tortoises for sale
Looking for the perfect 4″ pet tortoise for sale? We recommend looking at our juvenile or young adults if you are considering purchasing a larger pet tortoise instead of a baby tortoise well started baby. Yearling tortoises for sale are also often available as well. When deciding what size tortoise to buy it is really important to consider the adult size when they are fully mature, not how big they are when they hatch out of their egg!
For example: Unless you plan on keeping a very large tortoise indoors, you will need to live in an area that some of the larger African species can thrive. If not, you will have to house your new pet tortoise indoors when it is below 60 degrees outside.
Small tortoises for sale
Some of the most popular species of tortoise are the small tortoise breeds, or smallest tortoise species. These include some of the more popular “Testudo Family” tortoises like the Russian, Greek, Hermann’s, Elongated, Marginated, Egyptian and more. These guys stay small and we will discuss a little bit about each individual species of tortoise for sale here. Russians represent the most popular of all the smaller tortoise breeds or species when described properly as there really isn’t “tortoise breeds” like cats or dogs. We call them species and subspecies in the tortoise world.
Medium Tortoise for sale
The mid sized species of tortoise, also known as medium tortoises for sale include some of the most popular and colorful of all tortoise breeds. Species of tortoise are often referred to as “tortoise breeds” by those unfamiliar with how we classify animals, specifically in the reptile kingdom. Red footed tortoise, Yellow foot, Cherry head tortoise represent the South American high color species that don’t get very large. Cherry heads are the smallest of the red footed tortoise group, growing 9-12″ in size. Red footed tortoises as well as Giant yellow foot species can get up to 14-15″ but still weigh in under 30 pounds. South American species of tortoise are typically requiring lower UVB lighting (5-6% UVB), lower ambient temps and hot spot temps (88 degrees instead of 95-99) and higher humidity (75% over 55-60%).
Other medium sizes species include the leopard tortoise, Giant leopard tortoise from Southern Africa (which we also list as large) and some other popular species that can make great pet tortoises for sale.
Large tortoises for sale
The largest family of tortoises includes the biggest! Starting at the top, the single largest pet tortoise for sale would be either the Galapagos or the Aldabra. Aldabra tortoise for sale are quite expensive and females can hit 200 pounds where as the boys can reach almost 500 pounds! Owning an Aldabra is almost more like owning a dog over a pet tortoise or pet turtle. Giant Aldabra tortoises come to us from the Seychelles Islands are absolutely amazing in every capacity. Galapagos are basically the same size, cannot handle as great of a temperature variant or gradient and therefore we prefer the Aldabra over the Galapagos. African Sulcata tortoises are also listed as large tortoises even though they only reach less than half the size of the Aldabra. Sulcata tortoise start out around 2″ and can reach 24″ by adult hood. Sudanese Sulcata get even larger reaching 28″ and almost 200 pounds.
