Hi, I was just wondering if any species of Box Turtles are available in the U.K. If any one knows of any for sale or any breeders it would be greatly apreciated!

Sorry should have been more specific with the species. I meant to say the North American Box Turtles namely the Florida box turtle (Terrapene Carolina Bauri)

The only people I know breeding these are in Germany. We got some from the Hamm show.

Seems like a trip to Germany might be on the cards then..... I'm sure they would be selling for quite a large amount of cash though :/

Saw a trio of adults for sale in Houten offered for €1250.00 back in 2008
It is very rare, to see them offered for sale in Europe, and I suspect there are very few in private collections anyway.

Three Counties Tortoise Group

Short notice I am afraid, but Tomorrow at 2pm I am giving an illustrated talk on North American Box Turtles;
Some have said, talking about North American Box Turtles to the Three Counties Tortoise Group is like: "Taking Coal to Newcastle". Perhaps, it should be "Coleman to Tewkesbury"!
The opportunity to meet and see the UK's leading North American Box Turtle breeders, with some of their captive bred babies is a real treat:
Location of Talk:
Village Hall
Fleet Lane
Twyning
TEWKESBURY
Glos.
GL20 6FR
Entrance fee applies, which is going towards the conservation project for Asian Turtles at Muenster Zoo.

We have some one year old Terrapene carolina triungis females for sale at present. This means they are about 4-5cm SL shell length.
£100 each.
Next year should see limited numbers of T.c.carolina and T.c.major for sale as well, as they are poppin' their shells as we speak.
