I don't think that any of us Canada dwellers are breeding tortoises yet.

I'm in Toronto and I know 2 good breeders there. Tails & Scales in the West end (they ship :) and All Reptiles in the East end. I'm a frequent shopper there and I saw hatchlings of every breed mentioned above :)

We are not allowed to cross the border and bring back tortoises it's illegal kinda.... You need permits and or be a zoo or a researcher but you can't breed and sell the babies that is illegal the permits are quite expensive

You can bring it over as a pet but yes you need permits and such reptile express will bring them in but it is really expensive but I have found a yellow footed tortoise breeder in new market that should have some ready by november december

Hi everyone,
I have found someone breeding Sulcatas and Leopards not from from Toronto if anyone is interested just send me your info and I can pass it along. I just bought a leopard tortoise from him which is very healthy and active.

Hi
I'm in Manitoba and know a few breeders.
You can check out CBC Chelonians on face book they have a wide selection of captive bred torts and turtles too. I have a friend in Manitoba breeding Hermanns and Greeks.(PM me for his email)
In Ontario there are a few breeders-a yellow foot breeder called Mike but I am unsure of his details, he occasionally posts photos and info on Reptiles Canada classifieds and forum.
Kijiji has lots but be careful-I just had a very odd transaction with a guy from Ontario-more posted later on Rep Can about that.
There is Port Credit Pets they have a huge list of species available currently
I hope in the near future to have Red Foot cherries laying-maybe next year(fingers crossed)
But for now I hope these suggestions help a few folks.
Its tough finding them in Canada but you can find the usual species such as
Sulcatta, Hermanns, Greek, Stars, box turtles, marginated occasionally, pancakes occasionally,leopards not as commonly butnot impossible, red foots, yellow foots more uncommon and Russians too fairly easily.

Also didn't realise C and C tortoises had any babies available yet, but they have Stars and leopards and they are great guys with really nice tortoises and doing a great job with some unusual species in Canada.
They have posted a couple of ads today on here.I would not hesitate to buy from these folks.

Hi everyone!

I am Timothy, and my grandfather, father, and I have been breeding tortoises (mainly Mediterranean species) in Canada for the past few decades. We only just recently started selling to the public, as it is something my grandfather would never allow before (it seems the average hobbyist is becoming more capable of caring for our babies properly now). Anyway, I am the breeder referenced above by Meagan and Gregory (Rover15).

I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about tortoise husbandry.

All the best,
Timothy (Timothy's Tortoises)

My email address is [email protected] (I am the breeder Meagan is referring to).

I won't have Leopard babies until late 2013. I do have Sulcata babies at the moment (as well as Greek, Hermann's, and Russian babies and subadults).

Timothy
