The Team

We love everything about these fascinating creatures. Tortoises aren’t the easiest animals to care for, which is why we want to share our knowledge to make life easier for you.

With years of experience under our belts, we’re here to share what we’ve learned to help you avoid making the same mistakes we did in our early years of tortoise ownership. We hope this will help you provide the right environment for your tortoise, enabling it to thrive and live a happy, healthy life.

Our Mission

Our mission is to educate, encourage, and empower existing and future owners to make the best choices for their tortoises. We’ll do this by providing scientifically-backed research and advice that adheres to industry care standards.

We also want to show people that tortoises can make beautiful pets with time, patience, and dedication. So, whether you need help setting up an enclosure or choosing the right food, we’re here to help.

Our Vision

We want to become the most comprehensive digital resource for tortoise care while providing accurate, up-to-date guidance to help owners on their journeys.

Discover the Tortoise Knowledge Story

“Hey there, 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 were incredibly passionate animal keepers. I’ve always had a soft spot for these magnificent reptiles above all other animals. But I believe tortoises are misunderstood and disregarded as slow and hard to care for, which is a misconception I’d like to help change. 

It might surprise you to know that tortoises can start to recognize you – as long as you put the time and effort into caring for them. I set up Tortoise Knowledge to share everything I know with you. I really hope you enjoy learning more.”
