INDIAN STAR TORTOISES
TORTOISES FOR SALE
ADOPTION / EXPORT / EDUCATION
The Indian Star Tortoise is native to dry areas and forests in India and Sri Lanka. The markings on the carapaces of these tortoises are like no other and pictures simply do not do these beautiful tortoises justice. It’s said that this species has specially adapted itself to be able to find a stable stance after being turned over and that their shape allows them to turn over naturally!
These tortoises are quite finicky eaters and are considered to be only for the more advanced keepers that even have access to a veterinarian with experience in tortoise care. Their name comes from the striking star patterns prevalent on their shells which can vary based on the regions where particular hatchlings originated from.
Also be sure to check out the other Tortoises that we offer like the Sulcata Tortoise, Marginated Tortoise, and Leopard Tortoises to name a few.
All orders come with a free Tortoise care sheet and set of adoption papers for framing.

Hermann's Tortoise Babies
Hermann’s Tortoises are related to the Marginated Tortoises and are native to southern Europe. Their carapaces have an attractive black and yellow design and rarely grow any larger than 8 inches. Hermann’s Tortoises are herbivores and in the wild consume a wide variety of flowers, leaves, and plant stalks. Their natural diet is high in fiber and calcium, and low in protein and fat.
A safe and secure outdoor habitat with plenty of sun is preferred, and it should be planted with a variety of edible weeds, wildflowers, and a little bermuda grass. A southern exposure for basking, and bushes and rocks for hiding will be greatly appreciated by the Hermann’s Tortoise. If an indoor habitat is used, it should mimic the suggestions for an outdoor habitat as much as possible. The Hermann’s Tortoise is very hardy, stays small, and is quite a friendly creature!

Russian Tortoise Adult
Because of their smaller size and their hardy nature, Russian Tortoises are very popular tortoises. They range from only about 6 to 8 inches and need high fiber, high calcium diets that are low in fat and low protein to promote ideal health.
They prefer an open dry landscape and they are experts at burrowing and digging, sometimes even know to burrow as far as 5 ft. deep in the wild. They hibernate in the winter and are active throughout the summer. The Russian Tortoise is a very popular tortoise throughout the world and was the first tortoise to take a voyage into space!

Baby Leopard Tortoise
Found throughout the Savannas of Africa, the Leopard Tortoise is a very attractive tortoise known for its distinct and unique carapace markings. They thrive in semi-arid to dry grassland habitats. The distinct markings of the Leopard Tortoise’s shell act as camouflage in its natural habitat.
With proper life-long care, most Leopard Tortoises grow to 15”-18” long and 30-50 lbs. When kept indoors, they require a large, open area and enjoy temperatures around 90 degrees, due to the climate of their natural habitats in their native African savannahs. These are beautiful tortoises that require a great deal of care, attentiveness and knowledge about the species.
