    Thanks everyone for the expert opinions that this box turtle appears to be wild. We released her in the spot where we found her (but out of the road) and she took off like she had somewhere to be!

    Thanks so much for the expert opinion. I agree and she seemed like a wild animal- we released and she took off!

    Found a box turtle and trying to decide if it's wild or a pet

    As I'm researching it could be wild here (in PA) so I'm leaning towards releasing if someone doesn't claim as a pet. What do others think?

    New to Tortoises and Looking for a Reputable Breeder

    Oh it's awful. Disgraceful that they are selling living creatures. It sounds like sending the wrong turtle or tortoise is not uncommon.

    New to Tortoises and Looking for a Reputable Breeder

    I've thought about this mostly to flag the merchant, maybe credit cards will not pay them if they have enough disputes filed. My credit card company said it is hard after 60 days, but I'll probably do it anyway. I told Tortoise Town I would do this and they said, get this: We win 90% of these...

    New to Tortoises and Looking for a Reputable Breeder

    Hi there! I have a client who had a great experience with Tortstork. I was disappointed I didn't find this forum sooner or do a better job of researching breeders. We purchased a box turtle from Tortoise Town and received an older Hermann's Tortoise. He wouldn't eat for the longest time and is...

    Pyramiding on new tortoise?

    I've posted many online reviews including here. Apparently this is not at all uncommon with Tortoise Town as the "breeder" (not really a breeder)

    Almost impossible to purchase a freaking tortoise!!!

    We had an We recently ordered a female box turtle from Tortoise Town and received a badly pyramided male Hermann's Tortoise. They wouldn't refund the turtle food I'd purchased and said they feed them the same as tortoises (!!). It sounds like that is not uncommon or the worst from them. In...
