Tortoises aren’t the easiest animals to care for, so I want to share my knowledge to make life easier.

With a lifetime of tortoise ownership behind me, I want to share what I’ve learned to help you avoid making the same mistakes I made in my early years of tortoise ownership.

My mission is to educate, encourage, and empower existing and future owners to make the best choices for their tortoises. I aim to do this by providing scientifically-backed research and advice.

I want tortoiseknowledge.com to become the most comprehensive online resource for tortoise care.

About Samantha Harris (Owner And Writer)

Samantha Harris

“Hi, I’m Sam. As you’ve probably already guessed, I’m mad about tortoises. This passion has been ingrained in me from a young age, as my family has kept tortoises for as long as I can remember.

I learned everything I now know about tortoises from my parents, who adore them. I’ve always had a soft spot for these fascinating reptiles above all other animals.

I believe tortoises are misunderstood and disregarded as slow-moving, unintelligent, emotionless, and difficult to care for, which is a misconception I’d like to change. 

It might surprise you that tortoises can recognize you if you put the time and effort into meeting their care requirements.

I set up Tortoise Knowledge to share everything I know with you. I hope you enjoy learning more.”
