"It looks to me like a corner has been turned in the world of captive bred tortoises. This is the 1st time CB Russians have been so readily available... Maybe this will put a big dent in the wild caught Russian market."

i completely agree. this has been a fantastic year. it has eased the massive demand i've been experiencing (wink) and now i can sell my 16 babies at a less frenetic pace.

seriously, it looks as if many people have figured out how to get their russian tortoises to breed. it would be nice if we could collectively stop the importation and massive slaughter. too many crowded and ill-fed RTs in 10 gallon tanks at petco for my taste.

(i'm going to catch hell for that)
