    How do aldabras do with children? Do you need to worry about them biting? Also, how would an Aldabra do in a colder winter climate?

    RE: ALDABRA TORTOISE BREEDER

    Hi Rh1205, and welcome to the Forum.

    Here's a link to weather in the Seychelles (where the Aldabran tortoises come from). You can scroll the graph and see the weather for each month in the year.

    If you get the tortoise used to hand feeding, then, yes...you run the risk of your tortoise biting youngsters. If the tortoise associates you with food, he will follow you for a hand-out, and bite whatever part of you is available.

    * True, they can bite very hard and for sure injure someone!

    * Could you please repost the link?

    * A big concern with any large tortoise is the heavy weight and extreme strength they have.
