Chelonia


How can you look after one of these when they should live for up to 160 years? All the Chelonia we have in at the sanctuary have all outlived their keepability - the owners have got too old!

A lot of the tortoise that are for sale in pet shops in the UK are wild caught animals that are smuggled to various eastern european countries where there doesnt seem to be a lot of difficulty getting paperwork and once they are in europe with paperwork there is very little to limit the distribution. A lot of the shops dont even know where the animals come from.

Please, if you are serious about having one of these animals go and have a look at one of the best websites available for information on Chelonia.







DO NOT ASSUME A ZOO OR A SANCTUARY WILL TAKE THIS ANIMAL OFF YOU IN THE FUTURE - WE ARE ALL FULL OF THEM.
