My name is Ernie Johnson and I got started with tortoises back in the summer of 1971, when I purchased a female Berlandier's or Texas Tortoise.
For the last 16 years I've focused on Russian's, my very old male Greek tortoise, and a pair of captive bred, now adult Redfoot's.
Having spent my working life in Information Technology where facts and logic rule the day, I thought it was time to distill all the facts and logic I'd used over the last 16 years with these guys to help other owners get the right information.
