UK Captive Bred Hatchlings

A Testudo Hermanni Boetgerri emerging from Egg

I occasionally have Testudo hermanni boettgeri hatchlings available to caring homes.

All hermanni babies come with full DEFRA documention, care sheets and after care service for as long as you need it.

I deliver my babies in person wherever possible as it gives new owners the opportunity to ask any questions they may have. 

I do not use couriers in any way, shape or form.


Tortsmad is in no way connected to a commercial site known as Tortoisemad. The name may be similar, but there all similarities end!

I do not sell to people who do not have a suitable setup up and running, or who live in flats or houses with no garden access. No vivariums please and there must be deep (preferably outdoor) substrate for horsfield babies to accommodate their tunneling nature, they do not do well in indoor accommodation unfortunately after the first year or so.

Please feel free to contact me on for availability and prices. I reserve the right to refuse sale if I am not happy with applicants for whatever reason.

I presently have a few hatchlings available with CITES documentation, ready to go when they have reached 40 grams weight, similar to the one in the picture.
