It looks like a Greek Tortoise to me, but I am not an expert on those species. @HermanniChris would probably know if he is better now and reading the forum posts.

Wooow I looks like you have found it!! I had no idea there was such a great difference between graecas Thank you all!!
My guess is Testudo graeca graeca, or the "moorish tortoise." Here's a link to a pic on HermmaniHaven, but not much more info is given.


They are found in the eastern part of Morocco.:

I know right! Sometimes, it's kind of hard to believe they are all classified as one species.

Are you housing the other subspecies (marokkenis?) with the graeca? If so, it would be better to house them separately in order prevent any possible interbreeding.
