A: Please see our “Box Turtle” page under the “Turtle Info & Care” link for more information.

Q: Do you ever have Turtles for adoption?

A: On rare occasions, we take in aquatic species that we do not have room for and will adopt them out. There will be an application to fill out and a physical inspection of the enclosure.  We never adopt out Box Turtles or our Tortoises.

Q: Do you give tours of your facility?

A: Unfortunately we are not open to the public due to insurance reasons and also because the ranch is our private home.
