There are a hand full of people breeding these in the states but they are snapped up before they hatch or they are kept.

They seem to be a very difficult species to breed and the eggs are difficult to hatch out only because there is so little information on the captive care of this species and the information that is available is very inconsistant.

Those that come out of the wild are very difficult to acclimate. Once acclimated... they do great. They have one of the best personalities of all the tortoises.

There used to be a quota out of Paraguay but I don't know if there still is or not.

>>Does anyone have these in the U.S. for sale? Is anyone importing captive-bred specimens from South America? Seems like a great species to work with, good temperament and size for captivity but I can't find any. Advice appreciated. Thanks.
