Hello everyone,
Needing to ID this tort for rescue that has it. I’m thinking Ibera or Marginated? Hybrid?
it was found 3 years ago walking the streets already painted. It’s been a teachers pet ever since.
It’s had an obvious bad life, but any help would be great!
Sadly, no plastron pic yet or I probably wouldn’t need to post here!
Any help would be awesome!

Need pictures of the plastron. The Hermann's, Greeks, and Marginated can look similar with shell coloring and markings, but each have distinctive markings on their plastron:

Hermann's have two solid black bands.

Greeks have random black markings.

Marginated have black triangles.

Yeah I’m clear on all of them, but I don’t have any more pics than what I posted.
