Which babies should I choose ? The smallest ones or the two bigger ones with the red color spot on the shell ?

I promise you will get a lot of pics !:)
Btw: I have names for my tortoises !:D It is a little surprise.
I will tell you the names when I get the babies.:tort::<3:
How exciting for you. Be sure to give a nice warm soak when they arrive. Have you picked your two? If they are all the same age then I would pick two medium sized ones. If some are younger, then I would pick two of the younger ones. Less time of them being raised wrong if they don't raise/house, etc them very well. Just my 2 cents.

Wow....best of luck with them! We are all wishing you the best!
Thank you and all the others here very much.
The babies are on their way..... Here is a pic the seller send me. I answered him that I only see styrofoam... ( it was a joke ).
They are hopefully safe and warm underneath.:) I am pretty sure they are ....
It is so exciting. I think I cannot sleep much next night. A dream is coming to reality.:rolleyes:

Hello friends.
I am very excited. I`ve been searching for young Aldabra tortoises for a year in the past and now I found a seller in Germany who imports them from the Seychelles.
He gets a group of 4 month old babies this week. I am in contact with him. He will send me pictures of the babies as soon as he gets them.
I only have to pay and my dream will come true....
My heart is saying: Yes ! Do it ! Fulfill your dream.
Some little devil in me says: You are crazy ! Don`t do it....
What would you say ?
I am pretty sure I will follow what my my heart says, but I would love to hear your opinions.
What would you do ?
Thank you so much.

Sabine
I would always say follow your heart and dreams. I am so very very happy for you Sabine. And very excited for you too as i know how you have wanted them for so long. @Kristoff here is Sabine's post re her new dream torts.
