Hello David

I would like to thank you for the lovely leopard tortoise you sent me and to let you know how good the courier was as they kept me informed.

many thanks

Jennie from Berkshire June 2018


Hi David

I collected the trio (Leopard tortoises) from collection point in Dublin this afternoon. I just wanted to say a massive thank you.

I soaked them for about 30 – 45 minutes in warm water but we don’t have great weather here at the moment so they are in their home and under the Solar Glo lamp.

Once again, thank you very much for the beautiful trio.

kind regards

David from Dublin April 2018


I’ve had a great experience with these guys, very helpful in answering all my questions. I ordered 4 Leopard tortoises and they turned up in perfect health eating that same day.

The service and the quality was that good I ordered 4 more. Which again where perfect and the whole process from order to delivery was smooth sailing.

Just want to say thanks to David and his team. I’ve got 8 very happy tortoises. I highly recommend you buy from these people. I will certainly be back.

Hi David

I would like to thank you for all your help, advice and most beautiful little girl (Female Leopard tortoise). She has settled in very well. Tips her little water bowl over and is eating well.

Hi David

Just wanted to drop you a wee message to thank you for my gorgeous Leopard tortoises. They seem to have settled in perfectly already. Enjoyed their bath and are walking about their new home exploring everything and eating. Thank you so much for all your help.

Maggie in Somerset

Hi Tom, just a note to let you know that the two Leopard tortoises we received from you have made the vet very impressed by their condition stating they were the best she had seen bought from a store and as she deals with a local club wanted to know where we obtained them.

Regards Fred in Glastonbury

Just thought I would drop you a line. The pair of tortoises arrived today, and are happily munching away. They are looking wonderful and are much healthier than the two I took back to my local pet stores. I am now looking forward to getting to know them and having many hours of enjoyment in watching them. Thank you.

Eryl in West Wales

To all the staff. We are delighted with our new pet tortoise and starter kit, we received her this morning in excellent health and my son is overjoyed with her. He has named her Shelly. The starter kit is first class and good value as well as a piece of furniture. Thank you for your excellent service and prompt delivery. I will recommend you very highly.

Terry and Sam in Tyne & Wear

I phoned one day my Millipedes were delivered the next. Fast friendly and at a great price.

Lee in Bath

I would be very happy to recommend yourselves to any other person considering purchasing a tortoise and set up. The service given is superb. Comparing your’s to our local pet store, we would have been sold totally the wrong equipment at absurd prices from people who are only looking at profit. many thanks.

John in Billingham

I am sure you remember meeting me just before Xmas so I could collect my daughters tortoise. It went down really well & at a recent ‘new pet; vet visit in Thornbury was very complimentary regarding the condition of the tortoise (weight, size & general health), so THANKS very much. Just ordered some additional bits & pieces via your online store. Keep up the good work!

Chris in Somerset

Can I take this opportunity to thank you so much for the excellent after sales support your company has freely given. The integrity, sensitivity and understanding which you have shown is sadly very rare these days. You should feel justly proud of what your company represents even though the outstanding service that you give makes your style of organisation an endangered species! Thank you so much once again and please feel free to use this comment on your web page.

Jerry in Gosport

Tom, just a wee message to tell you that our Leopard tortoise (shelby) is thriving and very happy. He is eating well and is very nosey with a great personality. When I registered him with the vet, she said he was one of the best she had seen and she specialises in reptiles. Thank you for your help and advice on building a habitat and supplying items required for the initial set-up.

Denise in Aberdeen

To all the team, just wanted to say a huge thank you for the pair of Horsfields I received Wednesday morning. They are lively, happy and eating well. Thanks again for the excellent service. Kind regards

Sarah in Blackpool

Well what can I say, first baby tortoise arrived two weeks ago we were so delighted with her I just had to order another baby. He arrived today we couldn’t be more pleased. thank you for the brilliant service we have had from yourselves. I will certainly recommend you to all my friends, thank you once again.

Robert & Bridget in Rochester

Hi, thought that after having my Leopard tortoise for six months you would like to know how he is getting on. He never stops eating, has grown big from when he first came here at end of December. he loves coming out in the garden and eating all the grass! I cannot thank you enough for helping me find him.


Brazilian black arrived alive and well. thank you. Ps packaging was first rate.

Gary in Scotland

Hello, I’d just like to say your website and help is probably the best I’ve found. It shows you are a group of enthusiasts from the work you’ve put in. 

Christopher Spencer

We have had three tortoises from you, they are doing really well and are very happy. We went round looking at different places and they don’t come close in price and value.

Kath and Jack Wilde

Hello, I just wanted to thank you for the safe arrival of my new Leopard tortoise who joined our family on Friday. He is in fantastic condition and has settled in well – and what an eater! Many thanks once again for the super service I received.

Christine Botwright

Thank you so much for the safe arrival of our Hermanns tortoise. It is healthy and doing very well. I was very impressed by the service and help that you offered to us and we will be recommending your company to many friends, thanks again.

The Russell family

Many thanks for safe delivery of ‘Tillie.’ She has settled down very well and is very lively compared with our ancient male hermanns. We are hoping they will be good companions for each other when we introduce them to one another after quarantine. many thanks again.
