What can you tell me about this subspecies or can you direct me to a link that gives in depth description? I had no luck with Google, although I did find pics of a hatchling you had on turtletimes.com Danny.egyptiandan said:It does look like a female T.g.antakyensis
Good for identification but doesn't tell me much else about her (size, weight, hibernation cycle, natural habitat, feeding habits, etc.)stells said:
So they don't hibernate at all? Any other subspecies that don't hibernate? What about estivation?egyptiandan said:Feeding habits are the same as any other Greek tortoise. Weight for size can be checked here. Use the condition calculations to do that. http://www.ahailey.f9.co.uk/menu.htm
She'll probably get 6 to 8 inches SCL (straight carapace length).
They don't hibernate and don't like cool night time temperatures, under 60F mine get runny noses. Their habitat is warm, dry scrubland with short bushes, succulents, grasses and flowering plants.
I love sarcasm. Sorry if I made you feel like your response was unappreciated. If you follow the thread, the post right before yours I had asked Danny a more detailed question and I mistakenly thought you were replying to that. Hope you don't hold it against me.stells said:Sorry for replying perhaps more detailed questions would helpstells said:
I get you point. I'm new to this so I mistakenly thought that HUSBANDRY only had to do with breeding. Still learning the lingo.stells said:i was replying to your reply to Danny with a link made by Danny of a more detailed DESCRIPTION, when you use that word it usual means a DESCRIPTION of the tortoise, if you want husbadry questions answered you need to specify that
I don't hold grudges, well not often anyway lol
