    Thank you very much Carol.
    It is so good to be here on TFO. People like you are happy when I get my torts. In German tortoise forum people are mostly envious.
    I know why I am here !:)

    They are so cute!!! I definitely want to get some eventually.

    Sorry if this was already addressed, but I’m assuming that Aldabras would do better in pairs than other tortoises?

    Hello, Aldabra tortoises are very social. Even adult males can live together without fighting. To raise young ones it is better to have two or more. When one is eating the other will eat too when she or he sees her "buddy" eating. You can watch this on the video.
    I think it is good for them to live as a pair or a group.

    That’s great! Maybe then in the future, I can just get two instead of breaking the bank on three, lol
