On the Web - Chris Leone has successfully kept and bred over fifty species and subspecies of turtles and tortoises for more than twenty years. He maintains one of the most diverse collections in the USA including the largest collection of Western Hermann’s tortoises (Testudo hermanni hermanni) which has enabled him to become the coordinator for the North American Regional Studbook regarding these tortoises. Chris’ work does not stop with keeping and breeding but further extends into the public community via helping local zoos, organizations and fish and wildlife agencies. He is an all around amazing guy!
