In Reply to: Advice on species from all experienced keepers pls :) posted by shannons on May 10, 2003 at 22:20:53:

:I was just surfing the forums tonight and pondering the tortoise possibilities in our future. I keep a wide range of herps and breed geckos...DH caught the bug and has two chams. Anyhow, :) When we have room (we are planning on buying a farm in the next two years), he would love to get a tortoise. I have been thinking we would keep her in a stall, and let her out to sun and graze in some free pasture area when it was warm, and keep her with proper lighting and heat in the barn in the winter. Can anyone reccomend a good beginner species (considering their longevity, we will probably only get one ever, so I'd appreciate your opinions on the one tortoise species you would get in this situation...) We live in the Northeast, and plan on buying land in the mountains of upstate NY. Is a tortoise a viable option in this sort of situation? Thank you everyone!
