Hiya,
I adopted this lovely little tortoise off a neighbour, he wasn't a well man and had a stroke, in and out of hospital etc. so I've taken 'her' on. Was told she was a horse field tortoise and a girl tortoise because she was quite bigger than what a male horsefield would be... However, she's got 5 front toes and 4 back toes which therefore leads me to knowing that she can't be a horse field.. Can anyone help me identify her please? And is my lil tortoise even a girl? I'll post the photos I have of her on my iPad at the moment and will take some more when I'm back because these photos aren't the best at all!

Thankyou!

Tamara

I believe she is a Hermann's! :)

I think female is correct too...but I'd need better pictures of her tail area.

A cute little Hermann.

And a very warm welcome to the forum to you, both!
