Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to the community of tortoise-lovers out there for their help and support in building this site. It’s so great to see so many people who care passionately about educating people about how to care for tortoises properly. The more people who read this site, the more tortoises get to live long, happy lives, and that makes me feel great. So thanks for all your help and if you like what you see here, please spread the word.
Different species of tortoise need different environments and diets. Amazingly, I have found some pet stores sell tortoises without properly identifying the species! It is absolutely fundamental that you know what species of tortoise you are looking after, then you can use our species care guide to tweak your habitat and nutrition to the optimum.
I am a tortoise enthusiast just like you. Though there is still a lot I don’t know, I have picked up a lot of knowledge over the years and it is my privilege to be able to share it with you. I am happy to have put this information together on this site to offer to you for free.
