Red-footed tortoises (Chelonoidis carbonarius) are very popular as captive-bred pets. These tortoises often mature to a modest size, of around 11 to 14 inches in length, and can be expected to live for over 50 years. They are a significant commitment as a pet, which many find quite rewarding. Like most tortoise species, they can be prolific burrowers, so care must be taken to ensure they cannot escape. Native to a wide variety of habitats in South America (from wet rainforests to drier grasslands), this species often does not need to brumate, but does need a highly varied diet.
Be sure to thoroughly research the needs of any animal you keep as a pet!

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A man who tried to slither past U. S. border agents in California had 52 lizards and snakes hidden in his clothing, authorities said Tuesday. The man was driving a truck when he arrived at the San Ysidro border crossing with Mexico on Feb. 25 and was pulled out for additional....

Lots of good information here on sulcata tortoises.
These tortoises are awesome but such a large commitment and this is why we tend to not carry them in our shop.
Although we can get them, we just prefer for those of you who have less room to get something that fits your family better.
Please don’t be offended if we ask a ton of questions before ordering you one, we just want you to be prepared 🐢
While they are readily available, many people underestimate African spurred tortoises (Centrochelys sulcata), frequently referred to as “sulcatas.” These tortoises are native to Africa, south of the Sahara desert, in the transitional grassland savannah area known as the Sahel. They are the largest extant species of tortoise from a mainland area anywhere in the world; the only larger tortoises alive today are from insular (island) habitats.
How large are we talking? This is important, because they breed easily under human care, and as babies they are little, and mighty cute. Adults can easily reach over 200 lbs. Over the first several years of their lives, they grow rapidly. That tiny baby tortoise doesn’t stay that way for long at all. Additionally, this species can easily live for more than 70 years. These reptiles are no short term commitment.
While there are many reptile species that do quite well in an apartment, sulcatas are not one of them. An unfortunate surprise to many, sulcatas are in fact adept burrowers. They may view drywall as their unmissable opportunity to role play as the iconic Kool-Aid Man. They may view that porcelain toilet in your bathroom as a temporarily annoying speed bump. They have been known to burrow under a fence far faster than you might imagine. They are also stunningly intelligent.
Sulcatas are herbivores, and their best diet should include lots of high fiber, low protein greens and grasses. That said, some of the trouble these tortoises can get into includes eating “anything.” Spaces for housing these tortoises need to be very carefully checked over to prevent them being able to escape, harm themselves, or your home. Sulcatas also require UVB lighting to properly support their health.
If you think you have what it takes to provide a good, safe home for one of these intelligent and needy tortoises, please be sure to talk with people who work with this species often, learn what people often get wrong about them, and keep an eye out for tortoises near you which may have grown past being cute babies and need a new home. Definitely do a lot of research on this species before bringing home that wee baby sulcata!
