Hi everyone,
I’ve been a member for ages and have searched this site often for info but have only started posting recently. I have two adult tortoises, a male aprox 9 years old and a female who is 7-8 years old. We also have three very young hatchlings. The adult female has some damage to the top of her carapace, it was like that when we adopted her and hasn’t seemed to cause her any problems. They have rotating outdoor enclosures and then we hibernate the adults in the winter. The hatchlings are in a store bought vivarium as they are only a little over a month old. If anyone can identify them, that would be helpful. I thought that they were Hermann’s but now think they are Greek…
Anyway, greetings from Cyprus and thank you all for all of your help!

I am afraid they are all Greek to me.
I am not an expert on these at all.
Hope you will soon get some answers!

You've definitely got Greek tortoises!

@GBtortoises are these T. g. ibera or Sicilian T.g.g? I the curved sides of the first vertebral scute on the female are throwing me off.
