AVA only approve 2 species: red eared slider (terrapin) and malayan box turtle. can go google. All the others illegal.

Btw before getting them must do research on them. they are becoming very invasive in singapore because people see cheap and cute then buy, but after they're bored they just release. end up the ecosystem become screwed up.

I own a star tortoise for a very long time
They use to sell them here
I dont know when they started the ban
Star tortoise is very unique
And believe me they can be very tame
Mine follow me like a dog wtf
I can handfeed him
He likes me to pat him like a dog
He can throw tantrums too
Anyway he is like my son now
Got people offering few k for it
But i will never sell my pets
My dog who passed away 2 years ago
Stayed with me for 16 years
I still missed him very much
