Find Where To Buy Turtles & Tortoises

When looking to buy a pet turtle, we highly recommend checking to find one that is up for adoption already via our adoptions page or other forums.

If you still insist on buying a turtle or tortoise, make sure to only buy from captive bred breeders. Never take any animals from the wild as this will damage the ecosystem and the conservation of any species.
