LEOPARD TORTOISES – Customers please be advised.
Despite being the only livestock company, in the whole of the UK, who email a Pre-Delivery Care sheet for this Tropical species, and providing two Independent Care sheets with the delivery, and also in many cases giving lengthy telephone advice, asking if this tropical species is the right choice, we are aware that some customers have been ordering this species from us, and still not providing the correct welfare conditions for these Tropical tortoises.
In the interest of animal welfare, we have taken the decision, to stop offering Leopard tortoises on their own. We will only offer them, when purchased with a Complete Set Up (Housing, UV lighting, Heating and calcium D3 Powder etc) from us.
You are only able to order from this website, if you acknowledge that you have read and you accept our Legal Terms of Business. If you decide to order, you will see what happens next about, receipt and delivery of your order, which are covered at points 21 and 22 on our Legal Terms of Business page.

Sorry this is a bit late, but just to let you know the tortoises arrived perfectly well and happy. Walkers were superb. After a bath and warm up they settled into their food and haven’t looked back since. Thank you for all your care and the superb service

Morning, just wanted to say a huge thanks for my son’s lovely dwarf hermann – she is perfect and settled in really well. The whole service from pre/post order advice, right through to delivery has been great, much appreciated. I’ve attached a couple of ‘Shelly’ pics.

Thanks again,

Claire & Family. 30th January 2021

Good Morning – I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the fantastic customer service. I ordered a little late for my son’s 18th Birthday but you pulled out all the stops and made sure we still received the Horsfield Tortoise in time and we are all forever grateful. He was utterly shocked to receive the little guy as had been wanting one his entire life and at a time when Birthdays can’t be celebrated quite how we’d have liked, this made his day and I just wanted to thank you all for making it possible. Great communication with delivery too and a highly recommended company! THANK YOU

Keeping Tortoises as Pets

Unlike many other animals, Tortoises are very easy to care for. They don’t smell and can live for many years. They will spend the warm spring summer days in a secure enclosure/run in the garden. Most garden species like the very popular Hermanns, and Horsfields need to be warmed up in the daytime, and at night time require no heating or lighting. It is not advisable to hibernate small tortoises, as all tortoises will lose a certain percentage of body weight when hibernating. Hibernation will only ever occur, when the air temperature surrounding the tortoise, falls to four degrees Celsius.
