Cheers Sarah for the backup on "the other Forum", It really has kicked off now!...What did you think of that Slovenian Farm??? I am not convinced by a couple of photos though, and I did not see any fences???...This question goes out to anyone that may have purchased a Hermanns from a pet shop in Hull, owners Becky and Steve...She is selling "Captive Bred??? Slovenian Hermanns" in large numbers, has anyone on this Forum bought one from them? if so did it suffer any health problems...cheers...T.T.

Cheers Sarah, the mud is really starting to be slung on there now, but I have had to bite my tounge, because I have had my posts "pulled off" in the past...T.T.

Hi Sarah /tt as far as i no its a load of rubbish the eggs are dug up from wild animals then incubated also they probably collect wild hatchlings etc adding them to the captive hatched groups spreading worms etc to all the tortoises there are no registered breeding farms in slovenia to date , also the site doesn't show the adult animals enclosures to show how they are kept i cannot believe there are tortoise farms that produce animals from captive held stock in enough number to produce these eggs christ they would need hell of alot more animals to produce what comes into this country never mind the rest of europe and probably the usa to

I was looking for Hermanns a few weeks back and was very dubious about buying from any shop. Just in general, nothing to do with this particular one. Anyway .. i'd been saving for a while and looking for breeders etc when this lady at work said her husband had bought 2 from this particular shop a couple of months ago but was to be changing jobs, working away alot and couldn't keep them any longer. (She won't look after them, doesn't like them AT all) .. so i've got them now.

They look and seem fine but i'm currently looking for a good 'herp' vet in the area just for a check up to be on the safe side.

All seems fine so far, i'll keep you posted on Winston and Godfrey's progress.

those poor little tortoise's don't stand much chance do they:

Any one who has a tortoise and loves and cares for them, won't buy from these horrible place's

Your average guy on the street who wants one cus they look cute or has just seen a movie and kids keep banging on, will buy from here.

Knowing nothing about tortoises is a death sentence for these poor little tortoise's.

You used to have to have a licence to keep a dog, why can this not be brought back into keep tortoise's
