    Did you read this part of the article you linked?

    Raising these animals in captivity is extremely difficult and should be left to those with advanced tortoise experience. They are very finicky eaters and gain weight extremely slowly. Hatchlings would rather sleep than eat and most succumb in the first months of life. A typical hatchling in the United States costs about $500 from a reputable dealer and you should be prepared to lose this investment if you do not have significant experience with tortoises. It is best to have a close relationship with a veterinarian who has experience with tortoise care.
    so... do you have "advanced tortoise experience"?

    I know this thread is somewhat old, but I just wanted to add a few thoughts being a tortoise keeper myself.

    Hatchling tortoises in general have I fairly high failure rate in captivity. This failure rate does of course go down with the more experience the keeper has. I would suggest purchasing one that is at least a year old and showing signs of healthy growth.
