The Tortoise Habitat is based in the rural Catskill Mountains of New York State. We constantly strive to provide the best possible care for our tortoises with their health and welfare always being top priority. In the process of doing so for 35 plus years we have gained a vast amount of experience in keeping and breeding these amazing animals. Our goal is to share that information with others that are interested in tortoises, whether they are beginners or experienced keepers.
It is our belief that there is no one method to successfully keeping a tortoise healthy and happy, but there are some that can lead to certain failure. While the focus of our website is not to sell tortoises, through our own animals good health and contentment in their environment we quite often have babies born here and make them available to new homes throughout the year. The availability of what we may have is ever changing. We also do not wish to portray them as merchandise on a shelf for sale. For those reasons we do not have a "buy it now" option on this website. We would prefer to make a more personal connection with those that are interested in what we may have to offer. With that we ask that you use the "contact us" option below. We will be very happy to answer your questions and help you decide which species of tortoise is right for you
Thank you, Gary B, and Trevor O.
