Buying a Tortoise

We are based in East Sussex and we have a breeding colony of Testudo Hermanni (hermanns) and Testudo graeca (spur-thigh) tortoises. All our baby tortoises for sale are home-bred & they are all CITES registered.

Both Hermann tortoises and Spur-Thigh tortoises  were what was once known as garden tortoises and make ideal pet tortoises. If you are serious about a pet tortoise please check the ”Available Now” page for current tortoises for sale. I also have Tortoise Tables for sale.

Just Hatched

Don't be tempted to buy cheaper foreign imports (slovenian etc ) they might cost you more in the long run, you need to get them wormed at the vets as soon as you get them & they might die!
