Marginated Tort Help
Posted: 24/02/2010 by Lou


A work colleague of mine is selling a tortoise and after all the trouble of buying one I am tempted. I have seen photos of the Tort, seen the set up & asked loads of questions.

However, my colleague hasn't got an Article 10 Certificate (he has misplaced it), will this be an issue for me?

Hi Lou

Your work colleague will not be able to sell the tortoise without it A10

He would be able to gift /  rehomer to you but not sell.



Have you tried all 4 Breeders in the kent area?
