    Are most of the babies we see available born here in the U.S. or are most still coming in from the Seychelles?

    ~ Unless you purchase directly from an actual breeder, assume they are imports. Several sources use clever wording or titling to make it appear they produce baby aldabra giant tortoises, however they simply purchase from actual breeders and retail them with this illusion.

    ~ Note: If they are over 4" it is a clue they were possibly imported.
