    I took in a male african spur thigh tortoise as a rescue and I am looking for an experienced home for him. it is a male and the owner said it was about 5 years old. about 17 lbs. was kept indoors and let outside a little as you can tell from his shell.
    Looking for someone that can give him a large outdoor living space. I have two large tortoises now and would like to find a home for this one other wise I will need to make my pen bigger to give them more room.
    I am in north central florida. would prefer not to ship.

    I know you do not want to ship but if you get desperate enough I will take your tort. I live in Ohio. Thanks, Deanna

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I found a home for the tort. There is a man in Jacksonville that goes around to schools and teaches kids about reptiles and he is going to take him for his program. He will have a large outdoor pen and lots of attention.

    Glad you found a home... if it was even possible to get into Canada I would have loved the opportunity!
