Don't even think of owning a tortoise without reading this book!

Warning: Are you accidentally causing pain, suffering, even death to your tortoise?

Attention tortoise owners, enthusiasts, fans, and general animal lovers! Did you know that many pet tortoises die way before they should? And that many others spend their lives ill, sad, and costing a fortune in vet fees? All completely unnecessarily?

Here’s why…
It’s not because of particular disease…
It’s not down to cruel owners…
It’s not even down to other animals…
The main reason…
…is WRONG information and ILL-INFORMED opinions.

Let me explain.

People get a tortoise, they go online to find out more about tortoise husbandry, like most of us would normally do any time we wanted to find out something new…

…and then?

More often than not they read the WRONG advice, do the WRONG thing, and soon the tortoise SUFFERS, often dying prematurely.

You know what’s the second-most saddest part of it all? The owner doesn’t know it’s their fault!

Of course, you don’t want to be one of those owners, because you’re reading a website called “How to care for a tortoise”.

So you want to know how to give your tortoise a LONG, HAPPY AND FULFILLING LIFE

You want to be able to spot warning signs when your tortoise gets ill – and maybe SAVE THE LIFE OF YOUR TORTOISE

You want to provide a perfect habitat and know what food is BEST FOR YOUR TORTOISE

You want to be able to recognise if they’re UNHAPPY OR SLIPPING INTO DEPRESSION

What do you do? Go online? The amount of wrong information and badly informed opinions out there is KILLING tortoises.

Buy a book? The information is often OVERPRICED and OUT-OF-DATE.

You may be reading and thinking “Why so many capital letters, why so SHOUTY?”… it’s just because I see tortoises suffer needlessly, for the same reasons over and over again… a LETHAL COCKTAIL of amateur information and overpriced advice.

That’s what has driven me to create a brand-new ebook for tortoise owners, fans, enthusiasts, experts, animal-lovers – simply anyone who cares and wants to know more about these amazing creatures and give them the long, happy, fulfilling life they deserve…

Practical Tortoise Care is bursting with all the tortoise husbandry information you’ll ever need. It contains simple and easily replicable tips and advice from leading experts. And it will ensure you only do what’s 100% right for your tortoise – every time.

About me

For many years I’ve provided advice to thousands of tortoise enthusiasts through my “How to care for a tortoise” blog, where I share my many years’ knowledge, experience and insight of all things tortoise-related.

During the creation of Practical Tortoise Care, I talked to many veterinarians and successful tortoise-keepers, and I’ve compiled a list of the MOST COMMON KILLERS of pet tortoises:

  • Common garden plants your tortoise might nibble on... and DIE
  • The substrate currently being promoted on some websites that has been implicated in THE DEATH OF MORE THAN ONE TORTOISE that I personally know of
  • The injection vets prescribe up to 10 times a day – which KILLS ALL SPECIES OF TORTOISE instantly
  • The SURPRISING DISEASE that your tortoise might give you (of course, it’s not deliberate!)

Even if you have the best intentions in the world, by following the advice of many pet store owners, food manufacturers and other sources of bad information, you can wind up with a tortoise dead at a young age, or living in SILENT AGONY.

The good news? This is all EASILY AVOIDABLE. Once you know what not to do, you can have the peace of mind that your tortoise will be healthy and content.


After reading Practical Tortoise Care you’ll be able to:

  • Identify your tortoise species correctly and BECOME AN EXPERT using my tried-and-tested identification techniques.
  • Give your tortoise a diet that keeps him/her ACTIVE AND FULL OF LIFE
  • Identify and ignore (and hopefully correct!) the LIFE-THREATENING information you read online
  • Enjoy a PERFECT relationship with your tortoise
  • Say good bye to WORRIES about your tortoise’s health
  • Confidently SPOT WARNING SIGNS over your tortoise’s mental and physical condition
  • Become a “go to” TORTOISE EXPERT among your community

But how much does it cost?

There is another reason I'm working so hard to make Practical Tortoise Care available to as many of you as possible – the other books written on tortoise care are pretty rare, and hard to get.

I had a quick look at today and here's what I saw -

  • Redfoots and Yellowfoots sells for $75
  • The Care and Breeding of the African Spurred Tortoise costs $131
  • Leopard Tortoise goes for $199.99
  • Hey, they're great books by great authors, but I know a lot of you just can't afford those prices. Let's face it, tortoise husbandry is a pretty obscure topic, and publishing companies aren't going to be able to sell a million copies at twenty bucks a pop like they do with Harry Potter.

    So does that mean the KNOWLEDGE your tortoise needs you to have is forever out of your reach? Not any more. We are pleased to be able to offer Practical Tortoise Care for just $42.50$24.99!

Don't say 'Yes' - say 'Maybe'! Take a risk-free trial for 60 days

Still not sure that Practical Tortoise Care is for you? How about taking a risk-free trial for 60 days? Practical Tortoise Care was designed to help you enjoy the experience of keeping a tortoise. If for any reason, you decide it’s not for you, you can get a prompt and polite FULL REFUND – any time in the first 60 days after you make your purchase. No hassle. No questions asked.

To be honest, I don’t know how long I can keep the price at just $24.99, I know my publisher wants me to increase the price as we’re expecting a big bill for server space for all the downloads and hosting… but for now, the $24.99 price is yours!

Are you ready to unlock the secrets to having a happy, bright-eyed, lively tortoise?

See for yourself, or your money back!
