We will do our best to help out identifying your tortoises Jeff. I have Tunisians and some of the other North African greeks and so do a few other people here. Once you post pictures we'll get down to business.

Jeff
Can you put your photo's into a photo folder on your PC then click on the link at the bottom of the post form, below attachement, that says "Click on here to choose your file"
It opens up another box make sure your photo's are not too big and follow the instructions and it should bring it up on the mail

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 02-02-06 AT 02:56 AM (GMT)]Hi Jeff
Female #1 and the male are Testudo graeca graeca from Morocco like Darren said. Got a question about female #2 though. Did she come in with the confiscation of female #1 and the male? She is showing conflicting markings, like she was a cross between an ibera and a graeca. The carapace is very graeca and the plastron is very ibera.
