Hi all,
can anyone recomend a breeder to buy from? There are many web sites and a huge price difference between them! Not worried about price as long as tort is healthy ect.

Thanks Lee

The best place to look is on the TORTOISE PROTECTION GROUP breeders list.
Hope this helps!
Im so glad to hear you are going to buy your tortoise from a breeder rather than a pet shop,internet site etc.

Lou lou is right - do have a look at the breeders list on the TPG website (it's in the database section, and just click on the link after my signature to get to the site). Hopefully there will be a breeder not too far from you. Definitely do not buy from petshops or internet sites, as the torts will almost certainly be imported (they often say 'captive bred', but that is not bred in his country and they usually come loaded with parasites). With a UK breeder you gave the best chance of getting a healthy tortoise, and as an added benefit the price is often less than from a petshop.
Good luck, and let us know how you get on.
