Hiya,
Sorry to trouble you.

Many on here will know the unusually high rate of sick tortoises impoerted into the UK, often from Slovenia. Many don't even realise when they purchase a tortoise from a pet shop that the tortoise is imported at all. We've heard so many stories of tortoises dying within weeks of importation, chronic worm infestations; which should NOT occur in captive bred tortoises if the husbandry is correct and other illnesses. We are asking members if they have had experience of this to kindly drop us a line. We require written evidence to support our campaign to ban the importation of tortoises into the UK for the pet trade.

If you know of someone who has purchased a sick tortoise from a pet shop or online would you kindly ask them to contact us.

Kindest Regards
Darren
