Hi I got a 1 year old Hermanns in August and the whole family just love him, I got him down south but Bruce posted on here a few days ago that he has some eggs awaiting to hatch, not sure if he is selling them but you could get in touch.

Good luck with the eggs Bruce. How many have you got?
Will have to let us know when they hatch.

Birnies in Elgin is where we got our gecko from ...

they have a big range of reptiles including tortoises.

their website has an up to date stock list on it, it changes all the time and they're supplied by reputable breeders.
you might want to cut out the middle man and go straight to the breeder, but this place is well worth a look, very helpful and friendly and they really know their stuff.

888 reptiles is another one.

Im still really tempted to get one myself! :eek: Peninsular Cooters are just so cute!!

Its just the cost of the set up that puts me off a bit. Might buy it bit by bit......hmm....temptation!!!

you really dont want to buy a tortoise from any pet shop or internet sites.theese torts are mostly imported from slovenia.i have bought from pet shops before i knew what was going on.they were both full of worms and one had MBD.if you can find a breeder then i would buy from them.they will be in great health and a lot cheeper than pet shops

i Agree with you there, had to pay 50 for delievery only, and thats before you pay for your tortiose
