The application form for a CBW Permit is at this site: http://permits.fws.gov/ Click on "Application Forms", then find "Captive Bred Wildlife Registration (CBW/3-200-41" in the alphabetical list under the category entitled "Endangered Species Act (ESA)"

Fill it out and send in with the $200 fee, good for 3 years, and wait to hear what else they may ask of you. It can take from one to six months to get the Permit, depending upon your experience with tortoises and ability to fill out the form with the info which the biologists require.

If you have had experience with tortoises similar in size and requirements to Radiateds, you have a good chance of getting the permit. Be sure to mention that you realize they grow to a large size and will have adequate space for them when they are mature (both indoors and outdoors). Also mention that you will participate in the Studbook and follow the breeding recommendations of the studbook keeper.

Good luck. If you have specific questions, let me know privately.

Note: This URL directly to the application form itself was good as of 29 June 2009:
