A Tidalwave of Tortoises


If you are looking for a cool pet...outside the norm of cats and dogs...quieter than birds...slower than rabbits and hamsters...and not quiet as intimidating as a lizard or snake...

Look no further than a TORTOISE! These awesome reptiles make for an exotic, but quite easy, new pet. Great with kids, pretty low-maintenance (for a reptile), and totally vegetarian! You can't miss!



Here at Prehistoric Pets, we just received a couple new groups of Sulcatta hatchlings! They are the cutest little guys...barely bigger than a golfball when they first hatch. One group is still a bit too small to sell...but the other is ready to go, at $149.99 each. Sulcatta Tortoises (AKA African Spur-thigh) can grow to be 150 years old, and 200 pounds! They love leafy greens, carrots, squash, and WATERMELON (among other fruits and veggies....but NO citrus). As long as they get some calcium powder on their food, and daytime in the sun (or UVB) with plenty of heat, they are very happy pets.

Where's Waldo??


At about 10 years old, they are usually big enough to be outside...as long as they have a pen, and animals can't get to them (coyotes). But remember, they like to dig! Some folks even have little doghouse-type enclosures for the tortoises to crawl into (with heat) when they are cold or stressed...good idea. Kids love them, because they are different, but not scary. We have larger tortoises as well, ranging from the grapefruit-size juvenile ($249.99), all the way up to the 100-pounders (females $999.99). Prices vary.




However, since these guys DO grow to be pretty huge, you may want to try something that stays pretty small. We have two Russian Tortoises left...they are pretty popular as well because they usually grow no larger than a head of lettuce. So, if you are looking for something a bit smaller, come in for one (at $159.99) before they are gone!
