It is illegal to breed, sell, give away or take from the wild a Desert Tortoise. You can not have a male and female on the same property. They can only be acquired from a rescue, club or conservatory. It is illegal to have a Desert Tortoise without a permit from Fish & Wildlife. They are an endangered species.
