I am looking to purchase either a Redfoot or Russian yearling/juvenile and I am unsure how to tell if the breeder is raising them properly just from a website?! I see frequently to avoid "trade show" torts, but a local breeder I am considering will be at a local show here soon. (?) I looked at Garden State Tortoise site and was very impressed, I messaged them and was told they do not have any Russian torts right now.. But I am wondering if I go to a local breeder, then the tort will not have to be shipped and stressed.. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Just want to start out with a healthy young tortoise!
