Hi, just joined the forum as i am wondering what type of tortoises we have.. I think they're hermanns but not sure what subspecies?!
The picture is of our 6 year olds, the bigger one on the left is our female, and on the right is our male.

Many Thanks!

If you take some pictures of their plastron and a rear shot, we may be able to help. x

If they are hermanns, it will say so on their certificates, but not the subspecies, so as Kelly has said, clear pics will help. Have a look on the papers for country of origin, that might help too ;)
