I love turtles! They are my favorite animals. I’ve always wanted one but the cool ones are a lot of money. Once we went to a pet store and they had a big tortoise just walking around the store. I’ve seen neat turtles my favorite ones are small tiny ones.
We went to a pet store today and saw three tiny tortoises! They are called Sulcata tortoises. They are $219 dollars but my dad looked online for the exact kind and those ones were $110 so me and my sisters are raising up money for them. My mom said that I need to research about them. They do get really big but my mom said that we could still get them but if they get to big we will sell them. But online the big mom/dad can cost thousands of dollars.
The Sulcata tortoises are really active because they have to walk a lot in the Sahara desert to find food. The ones we saw at the pet store were walking around a lot in there terrarium. They are the third largest tortoise in the world. But they are really challenging pets so we will have to do lots of research. But we are still thinking about it. I’m surprised my mom might let us have the third largest tortoise in the world but not a dog!
Have you ever had a turtle or tortoise? do you have any advice for us?
