Hi everyone, this is my baby Hermann's tortoise. I actually do not know if she's a western or eastern. Can someone help me identify her please? Thank You!

It's a eastern. The black bands underneath are solid an not broken up in the westerns. Hermanni Chris can elaborate! Plus the westerns are really rare

Thank you so much! Just to make sure She is a SHE right? You are able to tell by their tail right?

Definitely an eastern, and you can read much more about the specifics behind identifying a true western on my site: www.hermannihaven.com

With what tail and those anal scutes, it's looking like a 100% female.
