Tom's Turtle Town was started in 1996 by Tom Teryle a turtle lover. He wished to share his love for turtles with the world, so he opened a store.

Tom's Turtle Town wishes to educate people about taking care of pet turtles. We make sure that you can care for one before you buy it. We also make sure you have everything you need before you buy, and make sure you are informed about care.

We also have information on the conservation of turtles in the wild. We have pamphlets on such issues. We can even help you Adopt a turtle in the wild as part of world conservation.

When you buy any of our gift items, toys, nick knacks, and such 10% of the sales of these items go to turtle conservation.
