It's not wrong, it's what most of us have to do. Research the person you are buying from, before purchasing. Tortoisesupply.com is a good place to buy from. Tyler, the owner of the site and a member of this forum, has many available. I wouldn't hesitate purchasing from him. There are many other members of this forum that may also have what you want. Just be sure that they have been members for a while and have participated on the forum, before just trusting a newbie, that we wouldn't know anything about. Good luck on your search.

arizonatortoisecompound.com is a good one. I have only heard wonderful things about them. I got my Russian hatchling from them however I live in Phoenix like they do and I picked him up instead of having him shipped. They only ship in the US though (i think).

Hummmm .. We need to go to breeder and purchase directly. However cost is too low here you can say 20/30 $ per pc :)

everyone says they're "abusive"

Www.backwaterreptiles.com is pretty great! I got my tort from there and he has the prettiest shell and is heavy and healthy! They shipped him in 10 degree weather here and he was nice and warm in his box when he arrived :) they have the cheapest online prices too.
