My son is wild about tortoises. We have a few tortoise-themed garden items, but nothing as cool as those. I'd love to have one, but I suppose the shipping wouldn't be worth it.

They are very cool and I really like the idea of recycling.

Great job on the tortoises! LOVE the first one's shell...that's a lot of welding, but it turned out beautifully!

Very nice. Bet they would sell on eBay.

After talking to my critters as they take shape on my welding table they are like family or at least good friends. I would have a hard time selling them.
Shipping would also probably cost a bit. The top one weighs 40 pounds and the bottom one 32 pounds.
