Experience Level: Advanced Tortoise [?]

Care Sheet: Juvenile Tortoises

Description

The single Radiated Tortoise we have available is the offspring of Adults that were confiscated by the US Fish and Wildlife Service upon arrival into the United States several years ago - and were officially placed with a breeder here in Florida. That makes this very pretty tortoise a completely new blood line from any others here in the US. At a hair under 3 inches, it is perfect in every way and is growing very well.

Found only in the woodlands, dry scrub and thorn brush of the Antandroy Territory, in southern Madagascar, the Radiated Tortoise is one of the world's rarest. This species owes it's present day survival to the Antandroy people who have honored and revered these tortoises for centuries, and will not disturb them under any circumstances.

Radiated Tortoises (Geochelone radiata) are herbivores, feeding on grasses, cactus and most vegetables. Melon and red foods are favorites. Our well started juveniles readily eat tortoise diet, vegetables and greens. With one of the most impressive high domed shells in the tortoise world, Radiated Tortoises can reach up to 15 inches, with most breeding starting at 13+ inches.

Only a very small handful of juvenile Radiated Tortoises are available each year. Their highly protected status, both federally and internationally prohibits them from crossing over state lines without US fish and Wild life special permits. When available, we are only permitted to offer these extraordinary tortoises to Florida residents. (No exceptions)

* Remember, each Tortoise order comes with a free starter sample of the same Tortoise diet your Tortoise has been raised on - to order larger quantities, see the lower left side of this page. *
