If you do breed them you should send Kelly one for his breeding programs .

Zombensis from me as well.
Is zombensis a full species now Kelly, or is it still part of the belliana complex?
It's a full species now. Kinixys nougeiy too.

Well they're still taxon literature of Belliana in the name so cannot legally import them into the United States. They do come in sometimes though with speks from Mozambique. They're usually not that pretty and distinct looking so they get snuck in unintentionally. Lots of times the importer doesn't even know either and they sell them as speks. Same goes with natalensis and Lobatsiana too.
