ESF animals available for ESF breeding loan

Added: 20 Mar 2019

Due to our agreement with the Dutch authorities, the following animals will be available for the ESF for placing for ESF breeding loan:

Crocodilurus amazonicus

Emys orbicularis

Chelonoidis denticulatus

Testudo hermanni

Testudo graeca

For animals that are part of an active breeding programme (a studbook), the studbook coordinator has priority in placing the animal specimen of his studbook. In case of more demand in animals than there are animals available, studbook participants have priority over non-studbook participants.

All receivers of ESF animals in breeding loan have to sign our standard ESF contract and will be automatically participant of the concerning studbook. According to the ESF contract the animals will for the rest of their lives in ownership of the ESF. We will also ask a small contribution per participant.

It is adviced to investigate the landanimals for possible parasites or microplasma. A quarantaine period is advised for all the above mentioned species.

For interest in these animals or for further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!

On behalf of the board,

Nick Cramer
Manager studbooks and studbook coordinators
