I cant remember what year but will get back. Late 90's 0r early 2000. Yes they were serious about the Hermans. They had never seen a collection this big and could see that it wasnt a case of bringing a few torts.inside for a few months. The Cattle people were loaded for bear and when they changed their case right then and there we new we were effective. Now they are inspected and certifyed to go out of state.Imports are inspected at entry like plants and importers are getting them de-ticed before export. I think some still get by so check your African torts close. I'm glad you explaned the Tic as it was a big deal for wild, pet and farm animals. I look closely now for tics on my Mt.Tortoises in which I never find any. I have two Sulcuta's and they get tics, but not the heartwater kind. I found a dead Cattle Egret in the Sulcuta enclosure right after the last Hurricane.(looked like it was slamed into a tree.)I'm close to the Intercoastel waters now. Several weeks later I fould Tics on the Sulcuta's. They were a S.American species. It looks like Sulcuta is a desirable host for Tics. Its a good idea to look close at your outside tortoises for tics. They are always up in the soft areas of the legs, and very hard to get off if you have a big strong animal. Good luck on becoming a Vet. If in Florida come on by. Vic
