My husband and I are looking for a yearling or so Russian tortoise. If anyone knows of a reputable breeder, online or local, we would greatly appreciate it! We are just looking for a healthy male or female to keep and not for breeding purposes. Thank you!!

Hello, and Welcome

If no one has one you may try the Reptile Expo in Hampton on the 8th.

Thank you! Is there anything in particular we should ask or look out for? We are not very interested in a hatchling because they are so frail and would rather have a little guy with some time under his belt;).
