Many years of working with this species has finally paid off. Not normally available at this size, these April Hatchlings are a“fit in your hand”version of the world's largest tortoise species. We have just a few 3 inch, 12 week old, well started hatchling Aldabra Tortoises. Now you can watch them grow from the smallest size possible...

Aldabra tortoises, Geochelone gigantea (meaning“huge land turtle) are the world's second largest living tortoise species. Found only in the Indian Ocean, on the coral- limestone Aldabra Atoll. A colony was reintroduced to the Seychelles islands in the late 1970's as a tourist attraction. The original Seychelles Giant Tortoises had been eaten out of existence by the end of the nineteenth century. Aldabra Tortoises thrive in grasslands, mangrove swamps and costal dunes; and enjoy mud wallows and ponds to beat the heat. Shade is also important for Aldabra Tortoises.

Aldabra's are primarily vegetarian, but will eat meat/carrion when available. Their main diet consists of grasses, dark leafy greens (e.g. dandelions, mustards, collards, turnips, kales), occasionally pears, carrots, peaches, apples, beans, peas, almonds and tomato's - red foods are a favorite.

Truly a dinosaur of the tortoise world, in warmer months plan to give them land. Aldabra Tortoises are shy at first, but soon become accustomed to their keepers. Juveniles grow quickly at first, and need good sized pens both indoors and out. A wonderful addition for keepers able to devote space to keep a very rare and interesting animal. Aldabra Tortoises develop very distinctive personalities and become more like family members as they get older. Several recorded specimens have lived over 200 years...

* Remember, each Tortoise order comes with a free starter sample of the same Tortoise diet your Tortoise has been raised on - to order larger quantities, see the lower left side of this page. *
