Stephanie Logan said:Well, if you can't share the stud book, how about some pictures of the top five Radiata "studs"? They have such beautiful shell patterns!
gummybearpoop said:haha...I wish I had pictures. The studbook doesnt have pics. It mostly shows genetic lineage in the US captive population, but only displays registered animals.

emysemys said:Kevin: Since "Gummybearpoop" already has a studbook, you can ask him to look up Vincent's name to see if he has tortoises listed in the book. It won't speak to your particular tortoises, but then you would know if you need to continue to try to contact Vincent.
Also, if you find out that your tortoises ARE in the book, then you need to contact the publisher to get the ownership changed.
-EJ said:Most of the Radiateds in the US are from St. Catherines Island and the Bronx zoo. I'm sure some confescations have made their way into the US bloodline. I Think the Gladys Porter Zoo might have some unrelated.
I know I have 2 females... not related to the US population... well... I don't know... but I've been told.
If anyone was listed in the studbook... would you want your contact infor available to the public?
