How to buy a TORTOISE from Kapidolo Farms

Follow my facebook page, Kapidolo Farms, if you see a tortoise you like – send me an email.  Most will be listed as NFS (not for sale) as that is a Facebook rule/policy, but ask anyways, they indeed may be for sale.  Old pictures of animals are probably already sold.

I post videos of animals for sale at shows on Facebook, they are for sale, many sell during shows. Buying a live animal where you can see it in life is a much better way to find your pet tortoise.

This way you will always see the exact animal, not a ‘representation’.

Disclaimers, Guarantees, & Disclosures


Use the contact form at the bottom of this page OR Send an email to with the subject header  ‘buying leopard tortoise’ or ‘buying Indian star tortoise’ etc.  In the body of the email tell me which one you want to buy.  They will be available until someone buys (pays for it). Once money lands in my PayPal account I will no longer consider it available.

You inquiry email should include:

1)Your name as delivery service people (FedEx) will see it.

2)A street address where the tortoise will ship to, or the address of the local FedEx shipping center where you can pick the tortoise up (I can help you sort that out).

3)A ‘best’ phone number where the delivery service and I can call.

Without these three bits of information there is no sale.

PayPal is to  you don’t need a PayPal account to use a credit card or PayPal.  I can send an invoice through the PayPal system to you if you ask.

I use FedEx Priority overnight service.  I can help you find a local FedEx shipping center if you would be willing to pick the tortoise up there instead of overnight delivery to your address.  Live delivery is only guaranteed for delivery to FedEx shipping centers, when you receive the tortoise within the first hour that is available from that center.

Why consider a local pick-up over delivery?  The tortoise will be in the box fewer hours, the box with be handled less, and there will be one FedEx truck ride less.

If you are local and want to come see and choose and pay we can work something out, ask.

I will always ship as soon as climate permits.  I ship on Mondays and Tuesdays so there are more weekdays for follow-up in the rare occasion that delivery is delayed.

Long term ‘holds’ may incur further charges, we’ll work that out.

LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEE.  I guarantee that I am putting a healthy vibrant tortoise in the box to be shipped to you.  You must express any concern within a hour of FedEx’s declared center’s hours for pick-up. Be prepared to backup concerns with clear, in focus well lighted images.

All remediation (righting a wrong or correcting a fault) will be negotiated.  If I did not do anything wrong or the problem is not my fault my solution may NOT include a refund or replacement animal(s).  Shipping is carried by the sender.  I offer lifetime support for husbandry and care.

I do not knowingly sell to minors, people under 18 years of age. I do not sell into areas where the species that you want to purchase is by permit only, or fully restricted.  Know your local laws.  If you are a minor and buy from me, there is no guarantee in any way, shape, or form.
