I made the mistake of purchasing a tortoise from a bad breeder that was highly well known and it died shortly after and they did nothing about it. I was referred to Arizona Sulcata through members on the Tortoise Forum and I was blown away by his responsiveness, knowledge, and care he gives to his tortoises. I received my little guy and he was running around exploring his new home and was an eating machine right off the bat. His shell was flawless and smooth and just perfect, I couldn't have been happier. I can see why he offers a years guarantee on his animals.
We have received our baby yesterday. I have local breeders but there are several big reasons I choose Austin. 1. One year guarantee! No other markets provide this. This means the breeder has confidence in their health baby and responsibility for customers. 2. Almost 24/7 online support on FB message before purchase. Austin replied within 10 min always with all kinds of questions. Super helpful! 3. Austin gave me 4 options to choose before shipping which make me pick a unique one for me. 4. After sale support is also great, I know lots of breeders will not reply once sold. Highly recommend!
I purchased a sulcata from Austin back in March, and I have to say that this was one of the best online reptile purchases I've ever made. Austin provided amazing customer service before, during, and even after I received my tortoise - and he has a one year guarantee on his animals! That's beyond industry standard, and how you know you're getting a healthy, thriving tortoise. He's been more than willing to answer any questions I've had, and the tort is already growing like a weed! Not to mention he has excellent prices :) Thanks Austin!
It's almost been a year since I've gotten my Filburt, he is as healthy and happy as can be! Arizona Sulcata is hands down the BEST tortoise breeder I've come across. I'm so happy to celebrate Filbert's first birthday soon and it's all because he was a healthy baby before I got him. Arizona Sulcata has extensive knowledge and practice excellent husbandry to ensure the health of the torts. They answered all my questions and sent me care information that really helped. My tortoise has thrived throughout this year and I couldn't be more happier with my decision to choose AZsulcata. Highly recommend for any tortoise lover!
Austin is a very nice at AZsulcata. He worked with me on payment, he answers my questions in 5 to 10 min. I bought 2 baby sulcatas from him . They are in best of Health . So everybody let Arizona Sulcatas be your place for tortoises . Thanks for all your help Austin
I received 2 VERY healthy hatchlings from Austin and YES he is very prompt in response and prices are very reasonable. Very pleased with the torts and may order more in future..
Austin Clayton at Arizona Sulcata answered all emails promptly and with appropriate detail. He, proactively provided care information. He was very precise about shipping times and details. Prices were 25% cheaper than Backwater and he breeds and ships personally. Communication was well above average. This was done via email etc.... He will provide a phone number and will offer to speak in person (Backwater refuses to accept or make calls to customers). It is important to note that I didn't talk to Austin personally and cannot comment regarding such interaction with first hand knowledge. Tymmysaurus Rex was a very fat, healthy, lively little critter who ate and roamed immediately upon delivery. At this juncture, I would have to rate Arizona Sulcata very highly and personally recommend them.
I've purchased a number of tortoises from Arizona Sulcata over the years. Their tortoises really stand out from everyone else's. They are always in the best of health and look AMAZING!!! Austin responds to emails almost immediately and always makes it an easy and fulfilling experience! 5 stars all around, thanks again!
I agree with everyone else. I bought a sulcata from Austin a couple of months ago and he is as advertised. I have a very healthy and smooth growing sully. 5* all the way!!! I will definitely do business with him again.
Austin is great! He always answers all of my questions and is very accommodating! I got three beautiful and wonderful sulcata tortoises from him. I also got a thermometer and 8 pounds of Mazuri. I can't compliment him enough. Five stars Austin!!!!
The owner is very knowledgeable and I did everything he said to raise my tortoises up and 14 months later look at how perfect these tortoises are, and huge!
Just reserved my baby salcata that i did buy online all safe and sound seems very healthy and im happy 😊 awsome price too. I did shop around and by far this is the best place. Highly recommended
Delivered on time, packaged well, and we now have the cutest little tort tort there is.
My son loves his turtle!!! We reserved one almost 2 months in advance for my son's birthday and Austin kept us up to date and scheduled a shipping day around my schedule. His communication was outstanding and the little turtle we got was even better.
HUGE THANKS!!! I was a bit skeptical at first about having a tortoise shipped to me but after reading reviews and asking around this seemed like the place to go. Austin talked me through the shipping process and put me at ease along with guaranteeing its safe arrival. I've been wanting a Sulcata for years and the one I received exceeded all expectations! I continue to ask questions well and Austin still answers all my questions. Service was beyond exceptional!
I purchased 2 babies, a year and a half ago. They are growing, perfect, and healthy! I would highly recommend Arizona Sulcata!
10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a Sulcata. Austin answers emails within minutes normally and never gets annoyed with questions. I received my baby healthy and happy. It has been a few months now and he is still doing amazing! I don't see any issues arising in the future! Austin accommodates preferences when it comes to shipping days and timing to fit your schedule. Thank you again Austin for everything!
My girlfriend ordered 2 hatchlings online. She spoke with the owner consistently for about 2 weeks before making the purchase. The owner answered every question she had, and was really helpful. We’ve now had our tortoises for about a year and have never had an issue with them. They’ve always been in perfect health, very active, and great eaters! We highly recommend purchasing from here!
I haven’t even bought a tortoise from AZ Sulcata, and yet they promptly answered all of my questions about raising a Sulcata. I fully trust their information, and would absolutely buy from them.
Been ordering tortoises from Austin for my reptile shop for several years now. He never fails to meet a deadline and his service is by far the best I've ever dealt with in the reptile industry. His hatchlings are far superior than anywhere else I've ever ordered from and now use him exclusively.
I bought an egg to hatch and was a little skeptical about it but was well worth it! They sent me all the links and instructions I needed to feel confident and be successful.
Austin is amazing! Best experience! Answered all my questions anytime was quick to email back and help me through the whole process! Always was kind and provided me with all the information I needed. Happy to have got my sulcata from Austin. Tortoise arrived safe and healthy!
I was referred to AZ Sulcata through a friend who raved about her tortoise and all the help she received. I found that Austin went above and beyond answering my questions and sending me links to everything I needed. The tortoise he sent me you could tell was well cared for. I couldn't recommend a better place and person to get your tortoise from.
This is my 2nd baby tortoise from Austin ( Arizona Sulcata ) beautiful and eating and growing. I suggest that you watch his video when you receive your animal. 2 years ago I bought a 10 inch sulcata he is now 13 inches and eating everything in his path. I recommend Arizona Sulcata healthy and bright babies. Thank you again!

Amazing and active babies, and the staff is extremely helpful!
My baby got delivered last Thursday 7-28-22. Very healthy. I am planning on getting him 2 friends here in the next few weeks and will be going through Austin again, any time I had a question or concern he responded within minutes no matter the time. He helped me fine tone my enclosure for my little guy. Highly recommend going through these guys for a tortoise 🐢.
Great place I had a bad experience with FedEx but it was worked out very quickly by Arizona Sulcata
Austin has been supplying my reptile shop with tortoises for years and they are always top quality.
Our baby was delivered last week and there was a clear difference between this baby and the one we purchased last time from a different breeder. This baby eats, is active, and you can tell just by looking at him that he's been well cared for.
Blown away by the customer service. Austin answers all my questions and the tortoises I've got from him are all doing well and thriving.
This is my 3rd hatchling I bought from Arizona Sulcata one of the most beautiful hatchlings received so far. I go to many trade shows and Austin's tortoises can't even come close to the tortoises out there. He is always available by email if you have any questions about your tortoise. If you want the best order from the best. Best of luck with your new family member!
