Purpose indoor (greenhouse) and outdoor accommodation nearing completion. I'm putting together a small breeding group of Marginated tortoises so I'm looking for sub adults/adults, must be healthy and have C.I.T.E.S documents . Distance probably not a problem, a forever home awaits.

I doubt you will be able to obtain a whole group of breeding tortoises in one go. If you get them from different places then you will need a quarantine set up for each tortoise for at least twelve months, so not an easy feat unless you have lots of land for greenhouses and outdoor areas. Good luck!

Breeding isnt as simple as it seems,for a start you need at least 3 females per 1 male and conditions will have to be perfect for them to breed successfully thats if they get on with each other that is.it takes years to establish a breeding group.
