I have been considering getting an aldabra tortoise for a while now. Might be ready to finally go for it with the next group of hatchlings you have coming in. I have a few questions:
1. I have a 12 year old female sulcata tortoise. She is very mellow compared to the behavior I hear other people describe for their Sulcatas (doesn't dig and will just stop if she comes up against any sort of barrier). From your site it sounds like the sulcata is usually the aggressor when housed with aldabras. I have a hard time imagining her being an aggressor.

Our Cyclura Iguana breeding project consists of Cuban Iguanas, Rhino Iguanas, Lewisi Iguanas, Cayman Brac and Figginsi cyclura Iguanas. Back in 2009 we started breeding Green Iguana, Iguana color morphs. Albino, Axanthic, Super Red and Hypomelanistic. We have also started raising and setup a new breeding program for locally specific island Iguanas like the Tobago Cay iguanas (White Zebra Rhino Iguana) and the Union island Pink Rhino Iguana.
We started our collection of Tortoise and Iguanas back in the early eighties. We were fortunate enough to obtain some of the nicest Iguanas and Tortoise when at the time the best known breeder was selling off their collection ( For those in the know, you know who that was) we are a private farm in Sunny South Florida with sophisticated outdoor pens and cages which are insulated with automatically thermal controlled. We have been breeding Tortoises and Iguanas for over thirty years but we are smart enough to know you can always learn something new.
We are lucky enough to know some of the most prominent breeders and leaders in the reptile world.
