I can't really decide where to get a tortoise from. Since selling them is illegal in the place I live, I have to buy one online. What are the best online sources for buying a tortoise?

Somewhere in northern NJ. I tried looking into some pet stores (which I now know is probably not the best idea) and the person there told me that tortoises were allowed in NJ but you couldn't sell them because of salmonella.

I'm pretty sure he was referring to the 4 inch law.

I have russians for sale. Some are over 4", so you won't have a legal problem.
