Hello,
I am in a good place financially, and overall in my life where I fell confident and know I’ll be able to have a tortoise baby and dedicate my life to taking care of it. I was wondering if anyone had any good resources of where I can purchase either a Russian tortoise or a marginated tortoise. I would like a website that’s reliable and takes care of their captive raised/bred babies. Thank you!!

Hello! Thank you! Before I created an account i saw that @Carol S was getting a lot of positive reviews but I don’t know how to get in touch with her and it seems as though a lot of people have tried to. Is there many way I can check if certain websites are trustworthy?

Send Carol a private message. Click the little envelope in the upper right corner, and then click on "Start a new conversation".

Be careful buying from a website. Many of them are flippers and have dismal reputations. Buy from a breeder that starts their babies correctly and knows every detail of how that baby was started. There are a million variables and different ways to start babies. These details make an enormous difference in the health of the baby, and in your tortoise keeping experience.

If Carol is not responding or doesn't have any more, then contact @TylerStewart at tortoisesupply.com He breeds his own Russians, and both he and his wife are terrific people. Trustworthy, caring, and responsible. I've done business with them for years and highly recommend them.
