I deliver babies to Manchester area but no further. I have hatchlings due any day, so depending on size, could go to the right homes within a couple of months.

I'd avoid buying from shows if possible. Contamination risks will be high and many of these torts will be imports, which will carry their own risks! You should be able to find a breeder near to you.
