I might add to what Dr. Z said to include that your plan is to acquire "genetically diverse surplus" offspring from existing breeder CBW participants. Describe your setups, diet, UV lighting, etc. and that you have successfully bred chelonians of some sort and discuss incubation mediums. You need not have to get overly technical when documenting. If you have not bred, ask another successful radiated breeder to be a mentor to your efforts and ask for a reference letter.

If all is outlined properly you will not be denied the permit- to date I have not heard of anyone being denied. Worst case, the process might get delayed until you submit the proper information. Also, after the first 3 years, it is only $100 to renew every 3 years. I would encourage anyone who has a love for tortoises to submit an application. Working with radiated tortoises is very rewarding and you will not find a more heartier, colorful species. Further, they won't eat you out of the house like a leopard or sulcatta tortoise. They get a nice size yet still are manageable for indoor husbandry- even large breeders! The yellow skin set against a black high-dome shell with a variety of yellow striations is truly a sight to behold.
