Adoptions are closed for the 2013 year. They will re-open late spring as the turtles and tortoises awake from hibernation.
Sulcata tortoises remain open for adoption throughout the year but a heated house is required to adopt. Please contact email@example.com if you would like to adopt a sulcata tortoise.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department has a great chart designed to help you identify turtles and tortoises. While it doesn't cover every possible species, it is great at helping you identify the most common ones.
Do you know them all? See the chart here:
