Given this past year's success, I am opening the Prepaid Preorder list for the upcoming year early. This method of allowing interested/serious parties to be able to reserve the tortoise(s) of their choice has worked wonderfully for a number of years now. By opening it earlier than usual, it is my hope that it will give more people a chance at being able to obtain these animals. It also sincerely helps us to stay organized as things progress.

I've spent my life putting together a collection of Mediterranean tortoises that are historically pure and completely unrelated to any American stock. These tortoises all represent the famous genus Testudo and are an absolute joy to experience.

As stated above, these prepaid prodders are for 2019 offspring. Babies will be more than well-started with several growth rings on them before being shipped to their new homes.
