Why has Pettortoise started allowing the advertising of tortoises ?
Over the years we’ve had countless enquiries from other countries, species we don’t keep and as always when we basically have none left (as they don’t grow on trees!) as a result we are far than able to meet any demand let alone answer all the emails so we decided to allow breeders and keepers to advertise their offspring and cherished pets to new owners.
