The Jersey Tortoise Sanctuary has for sale this years hatchling Testudo hermanni boettgeri tortoises to approved homes, from the mainland(Shropshire). Costs to import single tortoises from Jersey is usually prohibitive so they are here under license from DEFRA. They are £100 each and come with article 10 certs, care booklets, breeders records and a full after care service for as long as you need it.

i know about slovenia, but what other countries are there?

personal;ly, i go off the tortoises certificates anyway rather than just stereotypign the country but its good to know what countries are generally worth avoiding.

my mums going to get my a tort for my 18th birthday and i want to be aware of bad places!

perhaps a better question would be, what countries are safe to buy from other than UK.
