    Are you planning on keeping them all or will you sell them ? Aren't torts quite expensive? you could become and official Tort Farmer :D
    I will keep two I think, They sell for 100 from breeders, even though people think that they can make a lot from them, when you work out the heating costs alone you are always going to make a loss.

    I suppose you would be paying that if they where breeding or not, but breeding is only profitable when done in HUGE quantities. I will just be glad of a bit of money to pay my Dad back for the electric and vets bills he's payed over the years for rescues etc.

    Some people do send them by courier in boxes, personally I think it's pretty cruel, even if they are well marked it does not stop things falling on them, and it would be easy enough for them to be dropped in transit. Apart from that, temperatures can fluctuate and they would be at the depot over night. You can send all sorts of animals by couriers, but it's not the best option really.

    They are pretty speedy when they want to be- Yesterday I found a dandelion so threw the flower over to Gus, Yanni decided it was hers, and before gus could even take a bite of it, Yanni ran from one side of the enclosure to the other side and snatched this dandelion flower from Gus!! Wish I got it on film.
