I run a Shop in Oklahoma and my Business partner over seas is looking to get a shipment of Spiny Soft-shell Turtles and has asked me to help locate them. I am looking to spend no more that $4.00 a pound for a bulk amount of them but can not find them anywhere. If anyone knows any helpful information it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. -Randy Randy

We have an African Spurred Tortoise that is living in our back yard in Danbury CT. We just moved in and so did it (literally 2 days after we did). I am trying unsuccessfully to find this tortoise a home. We can't keep it as it is rather large and it can't stay outside because it is too cold. Is there anyone on here that would want to come get it? I have contacted numerous organizations but none will take it. Anonymous
I've had a male FL box turtle since March in my backyard...wondering if he's lonely for a playmate? Please contact if you find a friend to join him! No $$ trish
