Wow, GBP! They're beautiful!

Thanks Yvonne. Here are some other animals from 209(male), 320(male), 441(female), and 443(female).
None of these pictures below were taken by me nor do I own any of these animals below:

So... you bought a bunch of Bills animals... did ya?

Are the larger animals those babies... did you raise them to that size?

They are seriously impressive animals. Are they big enough to sex.

I'll be posting a series of photos of a breeding facility in Slovenia and Reunion that will make you puke. They are breeding them by the hundreds and can't move them because of the endangered species act. I suspect that will change in our lifetime. If you go to a reptile show in Hamm Germany you can get them for 500 euros... roughly $750 each.

Oh... I hope you didn't buy them as an investment...

No. I only bought one animal from Bill Z. He didn't produce those animals in those pics, but he does have some of them. The first couple of pics are my animals. After that, the other pics are other animals of a few bloodlines.

I can't wait to see those photos! I purchased about half my group for less than $750 each. I hear you can get a Yniphora for $800 in asia.

Well, it seems like any tortoise over $100 is an investment. haha But even if if Radiata value dropped to $50....I would still drool over them. I

Sorry new to these terms...

What is the meaning of 209, 320, 441, or 443?

Some types of tortoise have records kept on them in what is referred to as a Stud Book. Each animal in the book is given a number (rather than using its name), so the numbers you are referring to are the numbers of the animals in the book. Animal #209, Animal #320, etc. They keep track of the offspring of each animal and who bought it, etc. and then each baby is also given its own number.

oh i love radiateds... i'm so scared to own them though. i went back and forth between them and sulcatas, but since sulcatas are hardier and i'm a rather inexperienced tortoise keeper (tula was my first tort 2 years ago) i decided it would be better to wait.... but those are beautiful!!
