Seller "Tim" who alternately goes by Mike and whose PayPal name is xiao zhang at email redstar300@yahoo.com cannot be trusted.

He is selling unhealthy animals and sold me a leopard tortoise that he repeatedly claimed before and after sale was healthy. The animal showed up sick with a respiratory infection and kidney failure. The poor thing couldn't open her eyes or breathe well and the vet finally put her down after five days with no improvement. This after treatment from a zoological veterinarian who took great care with her.

Do not buy an animal from this individual!

No healthy issue

Just back town This leopard tortoise is healthy but she's very shy
she always the first one walk out from the hers home
she may need more time to know the new environment and new house

Thanks
Tim

There were no more responses after I told him the veterinarian had diagnosed kidney failure on top of the respiratory infection, none of which she could have contacted in shipment.
