As already mentioned the Leopard tortoise and the African spurred tortoise require an accredited veterinarian to examine the tortoises for ticks, and issue a certificate of veterinarian inspection stating the tortoise is free of ticks, in order to transport those species across any state line. The Bell’s hinge-back tortoise is included in this group.

If the tortoises were transported, from out of state to the show, and there is not a show veterinarian, the vendor should be able to give you a copy of his health certificate (assuming he transported the tortoises legally). It is a violation of federal law to transport the tortoise across state lines without the health certificate.

You can go to the below web page for specific requirements for your state:



USDA - APHIS State Import and Export regulations
