Hello,

Can you help me determine what species these two tortoises are?

Thank you in advance for your help.

 

Best regards,

Erol

It is probably Testudo graeca, which subspecies I unfortunately not know!


Testudo graeca is covered by CITES - do you have the certificate?!

Where do they come from?

Thank you! I thought Testudo graeca ssp. as well, but I wasn't sure, so I wanted to get some more opinions.The tortoises are not mine, they are my friend's in The Netherlands and she asked if I can help her out to determine the species. I'm not sure if she has CITES papers...I hope she does!

Testudo graeca probably north african but can also be middle east. T g has a very wide geographical range and it is difficult to  be sure. 

 

CITES II (does not need CITES papers)

But in EU:

EU Annex A (does need "EU-CITES papers" for commercial activities in EU)
