The story to know before you Order Tortoise Online

Buy a Tortoise Online

Here at Tortoise Online Shop I am always being asked the question… “what exactly is TOS all about?

Tortoise Online Shop was created for many reasons, but the main goal is to help all tortoise species through captive breeding. This is accomplished through a lot of different means and I try my best, to do my part. As a private tortoise keeper, I have slowly learned through self education, hands on experience, many failures, and many successes.

Starting from the “now common” Sulcata Tortoise(Geochelone sulcata) over a decade ago, to currently maintaining 37 different sub species/species, with many of them being listed as Critically Endangered, CITES Appendix 1. I truly believe that maintaining legal species of tortoises and captive breeding will help slow the wild exportation of these animals.

Many chelonian species are approaching extinction, or are almost extinct in their native regions. With the surplus of offspring being produced by my adult breeding groups, I created TOS to showcase my tortoises and offer them to a wider audience.

Over the course of a few years, by offering the highest quality and healthiest tortoises, networking and establishing relationships, Tortoise Online Shop has become one of the leaders in the industry for captive produced tortoises. Being a leader, TOS has a responsibility to the Industry. I feel I need to do my part and help educate the public with correct information, work along side other breeders, zoos, private foundations and tortoise keepers to preserve these exotic animals.

I’ve made sure to have Tortoise Online Shop interact with the reptile community by sharing our information on forums such as, Tortoise and many different social media sites. I am personally answering emails and following up with customers daily to ensure the livelihood of the tortoises offered through Tortoise Online Shop.

Social media such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr and Instragram help us with being able to connect with other tortoise keepers and share different husbandry technics, ideas and share photos.

Being located near California’s native Sonoran Desert Tortoise population, Tortoise Online Shop felt a sense of responsibility for this native species. We do work with both sub species of Desert Tortoise (Gopherus agassizii and Gopherus morafkai).

The Morafkai is native to California but the Agassizii is also common since many people move from California to California and bring there pet tortoises with them. Working along with such organizations like the Phoenix Herpilogical Society, California Humane Society, California Game and Fish Department and local City Animal Control Officers, TOS has designated a part of the compound for rescued tortoises as well as setting up a Desert Tortoise Adoption Program through the TOS website.

I personally wanted to work with a wide variety or tortoises and not focus on just one species or group. The goal of Tortoise Online Shop is to offer only the species that I personally works with and breed. I think hands on knowledge of the species is the only true way one can offer the best information and care to others.

Tortoise Online Shop does offer a limited number of supplies to help keepers maintain their tortoise. The supplies that are offered through the site are supplies that I personally use to maintain my groups. By maintaining such a wide variety of tortoises, this has opened many doors.

Tortoise Online Shop os the best

Tortoise Online Shop is a member of the California Herpetological Association, Turtle Survival Alliance, The Turtle Conservancy & Behler Chelonian Center and the Turtle & Tortoise Preservation Group. Public donations are what keeps these organizations going to help save wild populations and educate keepers of captive bred specimens. Taking part in tortoise conferences I am always trying further educate myself and better Tortoise Online Shop.

I was honored when Reptile Magazine approached me and asked if I would be willing to write a captive care article on Russian Tortoises (Agrionemys horsfieldii). The article “Captive Care on Russian Tortoises” was published in September of 2013. Currently I am working on other article on Radiated Tortoise(Astrochelys radiata) Care, with hopes of publication in 2014.

I’ve tried to provide a good base of information for the first-time tortoise owner and experienced keeper alike through Tortoise Online Shop. Located on the TOS site there is multiply species specific care sheets and informational articles. I list exactly what we feed our tortoises, how we house them indoors and out and many other useful topics. There is also a page dedicated to “Links”, this is a direct line to other great informational sites, breeders and reads.

I would like to mention that we work with different schools and school teachers by offering discounts on classroom pets and donating tortoises for exhibits. This is a great way to get kids involved and hopefully they will grow up to share in the same ideals of preserving our tortoises for future generations.
