Tortoise



It is breeding season for tortoises now (Spring, early Summer) and they are moving around to find mates.
Please do not remove any tortoises from their habitat, as they have adapted to the food sources in their area and may not survive relocation to a domestic or other habitat situation.
Please think of the tortoises needs and requirements, before acting impulsively. 

All persons wishing to keep tortoises are required to have a permit from the Dept. of Nature Conservation.
