The African Tortoise site was created to provide a knowledge base for Sulcata and Leopard Tortoises keepers. The focus of this site, is to create a better understanding of these unique and often misunderstood animals. This information was amassed from experienced breeders and keepers and published references. This site is continuously updated. Check back often.
Special Thanks to:
- Theresa Chirico for all the hours spent discussing care and
nutrition...and for being my friend
Theresa and I spent considerable time together working on the content of this site. Our plan was to publish it in the spring of 2002. Unfortunately she passed on before we could create the site. A year after her death I decided to create this site as a memorial to her and her hard work.
- The members of The African-Tortoise YaHoo Group a great bunch of people dedicated to African species
- Jane Nicoll for sharing pictures, knowledge and friendship.
