Brazilian cherryhead female (Caatinga type)

0.1 Brazilian cherryhead (Caatinga type carbonaria)

~8" scl

1375 shipped or 1300 quasi-locally

The female was imported earlier this year. She was thoroughly treated by me on several fronts just in case. She was then thoroughly treated by Carl May after I handed her to him. She has shown good growth since initial arrival. She is not large enough to lay based on the size of her shell's posterior gap. She needs about two inches of additional linear growth. Her plastron looks Bolivian-level dark, but she is Brazilian. If I worked wth Caatinga types as much as I focus on Bahia types, I would be keeping this animal for myself due to the dark plastron, the head color, vigor/health, and personality.

She underwent quarantine and observation periods as all newcomers should in ideal scenarios. In other words, she is safe. Some people who resell have a tendency to BS buyers about time possessed, treatments, CB/WC status, shell length, proven status, and so on. This animal has no such concerns or exaggerations associated with it thanks to some good hands putting the work into things. I would not call this animal an LTC due to the time here (and even though it is technically CB because it is farmed, these can come in riddled with internal hitchhikers), she is as sturdy as the best well-worked LTCs are.

Feeding on fruits, moistened pellets, and vegetation. Care is as for any other redfoot. Higher humidity. A water dish and/or soaking for hydration. Forest edge bordering on savanna tortoise lifestyle. That sort of thing.

Feel free to check out and like/follow the Tortoise Morphs Facebook page, Instagram page, and Tortoise Morphs website if you are so inclined. is our home base for advertising even with all of those other portals of access to information. You will see more real-time non-advertising content on the pages mentioned in comparison to what my ads show.

Any buyer is expected to have done his/her research prior to making contact, as it shows intellectual investment in the well-being of the animal(s).


Shipping and LAG:

I ship via Reptile Express (which utilizes Fed-Ex). If there is adverse weather involved, we will wait for a safer shipping window as warranted. Contact me at nickolasanastasiou at yahoo dot com if you are interested in purchasing. I offer a live arrival guarantee if you are present to receive. If there is a DOA situation, I expect multiple hi-res photos adequately displaying the condition within an hour of receipt (and I may require the corpse/corpses to be sent back to me; you will be compensated for this if it happens). If there is a discrepancy in description, I expect to be made aware of it within the day it is received (in which case, I will issue you a full refund upon safe return of the animal/animals to me). Animals under 4" scl are not sold as pets. Contiguous 48 only (I actually can ship to HI or AK, but there may be additional costs involved that the buyer would have to cover).

Shipping is running me approximately $65 to $75 most of the time now. Sometimes I save two bucks and sometimes I lose ten over the included number, so $65 to $75 is what I settle at for smaller animals. I suppose I could meet up with someone closer and chop the shipping off, but it would have to be a convenient location for me and I am ONLY chopping the shipping off for a meet-up. The distance you traverse has zero bearing on this cost reduction. Larger animals cost a heap more to ship, so that incorporated cost is steeper.


Email me at nickolasanastasiou at yahoo dot com if you are interested in purchasing. I am usually busy between work, perhaps school, care for my menagerie, more work, family stuff, and yet more work, so email works best for me. Deal discussions are to be conducted through email. Since I use Fauna private messages for site-related communications, I am unlikely to respond to PMs about animals in my ads. It also implies the person either did not read or did not care about what was written.


All non-local sale prices have shipping cost, packaging, and any miscellaneous fees/costs built in for buyer convenience except where otherwise indicated (usually for much larger individuals). What you see is what you get. Payment plans are no longer accepted. If only a portion of the total due is sent to me and I have not explicitly agreed to that, I reserve the right to refund you and refuse sale. If an offer is made and I accept it with a time frame involved for payment, a lapse of said time frame without any delivery of payment typically means the agreement has been invalidated (for example, if you say you are going to pay me [amount] on [date] and I agree to that, the deal is basically void if [date] passes and payment has not been sent) unless we both agree to the renegotiation of the payment window and there are no communication deficits.


Unsexed animals, probable sexes, and temp-sexed animals have no associated guarantees as to a specific sex. A probable male/female appears to be so at the time, but has not necessarily reached full maturity, so there is room for error. A TSF or TSM label is subject to the performance of accurate TSD and that is a shift of probability in favor of a particular sex (it often works out, but occasionally does not; such is the chance we all take). A guaranteed sex is, as stated, guaranteed. If an animal of guaranteed sex ends up revealing itself to be not of the purchased and explicitly declared sex (with sufficient evidence sent to me) down the road, it can be returned to me in a healthy state for a full refund (the general practice) or, if you are attached emotionally, we may be able to do a partial refund based on current market prices while you retain the animal.


I prefer sales to trades in almost all cases. Not seeking trades at this time.


Things we are not: a charity, a rescue, or a home for wayward tortoises that failed to make it big by venturing out West only to end up starring in tortoise mating documentaries.
