    Just because you have an animal that isn't dead yet, doesn't mean you know how to care for it.

    Wowzer.........I never heard of these before nor do they feature in any of my books. They must be very rare and very beautiful.

    We have several Impressed tortoises for sale at the best pricing anywhere. These high altitude asian tortoises are one of the most sought-after species in the world, due to their rarity as well as their exquisite shell. Their natural diet includes mushrooms, but they have been known to consume banana in captivity. When you buy a tortoise from us, you automatically receive our 100% live arrival guarantee.
    I am Afrikaans speaking, excuse my English.

    QUALITY OF LIFE IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS GOOD HEALTH.

    I reckon these would be nearly impossible to keep in captivity unless you lived at the high altitude from which they come.
    Very specialised species...............not many zoos seem to be keeping them. Amazing though.
