As an aid to those attempting to duplicate a natural environment as well as arrange for the safe shipping for their turtles and tortoises we are providing this page.  In the table below are the current weather conditions for various locations around the world at this time.  Clicking on any of the icons will take you to a service hosted by Wunderground that will supply a full weather report for that specific area. 


In arranging the care and habitats for turtles and tortoises the knowledge of the current conditions where they may have originated is hoped to be an aid in both providing proper care and in understanding their behavior as they become acclimated to their new environs. Obviously an animal removed from its native environment will stressed by changing weather conditions and seasons. These changes can also result in breeding activity and hibernation drives  at what are now inappropriate times of the year in its new location. It is vitally important, especially with temperate species like Chaco tortoises (Geochelone chilensis) and Russian tortoises (Testudo horsfieldii) as well as many others,  that one take into account the seasonal change when moving them across the equator.   An animal preparing to hibernate suffers extreme stress when suddenly thrust into summer just as one preparing to breed or possibly gravid does when confronted with the cooler temperatures and lowered light intensity and duration of winter. 


Regarding the shipping of animals it is the responsibility of the person doing so to insure that any such transport be done both safely and legally. The World Chelonian Trust assumes no liability for mistakes either in the reported weather conditions at transshipping points or the methods used to ship by viewers of this page.
