So true, I didn't think of that. How long do these tortoises live, Toirtis?

Actually, thats cheap...if legal angulated tortoise hatchlings were to hit the market, they would fetch at least $20K US each.

Leopards commonly live to 75-100, and 150 is not unheard of.

Can you post pics of the areas it lives in?

Man we have an AQUARIUM ADVICE that has info on the tank setup and whatever, but what does it take to care for a turtle?

No I mean where YOU keep it at, what you feed it, etc. Just kinda fill me in like you would fill me in on aquariums.
