Reptiles/Tortise

Question
My tortise
My tortise  
I have a tortise I believe it is a small male sulcata. I would like to sell it and wanted info on cost and places to sell

Answer
I have had some success selling reptiles on Craigslist under either the pets tab or the farm and garden section. There is no cost, but you should use common sense when dealing with unknown people.  I would usually meet prospective customers at the local McDonalds for example.  I would estimate your tortoise has a reasonable value of ~$100.  But my experience is mostly in FL and the SE.  Perhaps prices are different in CA.  Good Luck!
