    Hi,

    May I know anyone from Phillipines know that where can I see places like tortoise zoo or tortoise marketplace in Manila?

    I'm heading to Manila next week would like to see some torts over there, besides the national zoo, any other place where the chelonian hang out in Manila?

    Thank you,

    Jonathan Chung

    Hi,

    Apparently I found one shop selling tortoise in Manila, it's situated in cartimar market at pasay.

    For reference, 7500 Philippine pesos appears to be about 167 USD.

    I think he is talking about Redfoot.
    That's a fair price in America.
