They are really great pets, along with crocodilians, they are considered the "high intelligence" reptiles.
There's tortoises here. But a red footed in Canada costs $300 minimum, in the US you can get a baby for $50.
It's impossible to import them, due to "salmonella risk". I'm sorry but every reptile can carry it, as well as most birds. >__>
Salmonella is too common and that seems a stupid reason. I would appreciate the link.

The fact that people won't allow salmonella pets into the country is stupid seeing that factory farmed chickens carry it in their belly and people eat them everyday! o.o Actually that's scary. I had salmonella sickening off my turtle ONCE in 12 years. And it only lasted a day and half.

Exactly. I had my ball python for 8 years, not gonna lie, I'm not the most careful, I eat and hold him at the same time. I'm only careful around the poo. Never had salmonella.
I'll find you the link when I get home :D
