Reptiles from Southern Province, Zambia were captured and inspected for ticks. Seven of 18 tortoises (Geochelone pardalis) were infested by small numbers of adults and nymphs of Amblyomma marmoreum. Under such circumstances, the tick had little apparent effect on the host. None of the 13 specimens representing four species of snakes examined were infested with ticks.
