What are they!?
Posted: 06/03/2013 by AmyJayne24

We got 2 little tortoises back in January... The previous owner informed us they were Tunisian Spur Thighed Tortoises, however we just aren't sure! Please could someone take a look at the picture & let us know?

Many thanks in advance!

They do look like Tunisians:-)
The trouble is there are so many regional variations with many tortoises and genetics plays a part. There's no reason to assume they are not at all:-)
