Hey everyone. Recently purchased a female Leopard Tortoise (12+ inches) from Chris for my mom and a female Indian Star Tortoise (6.5") for myself. Both purchases were extremely smooth as Chris answered all my questions about the shipping process to ease my mind, gave me a run down on their current diets and habitats. I have always been hesitant to purchase any livestock online and am confident in future purchases with Chris and his expansive knowledge and passion for how he takes care of his animals. It truly shows upon un-boxing of the animals' quality and health and the dedication he provides them to ensure the best possible health of these animals in our care. I will definitely be purchasing more tortoises from Chris in the future, so if you're on the fence about purchasing an animal online, don't hesitate with Chris (www.gardenstatetortoise.com or www.hermannihaven.com ) as you will get more than you pay for with dedication, reliability, knowledge, and most importantly healthy animals!!! Pictured is the new female indian star tortoise I received from Chris yesterday morning in her quarantine enclosure. Thanks Chris!
