I recently acquired a tortoise from a college student who got the tortoise from a family that was moving away and could not take it with them. That family told the college student that it was a box turtle, which it definitely is not, so I don't know how well she was cared for, and the college student only had a basic UVA basking light for heat and fed her iceberg lettuce (which I understand isn't a very good choice for tortoise food). He had her for about three months so I was concerned that she might be experiencing some vitamin deficiencies due to the diet and lighting, but she seems to be OK as far as I can tell. I'm a tortoise beginner but I've been studying and reading as much as I can to try to learn how to properly take care of my new little friend. I have a ZooMed UVB lamp for her now and have been feeding her dandelions and kale leaves with Rep-Cal (Calcium and Vitamin D) sprinkled on it. She seems to be healthy and very active and likes to run around the house when I take her out of her relatively small (and temporary) aquarium, but I'm having trouble deciding for sure what species she is. I'd like to find out so that I can make sure I'm giving her the right temperatures and appropriate food. There aren't any reptile veterinarians in my area that I can find, so I'm hoping that you can help me out. I'll give you a description and then post some pictures. She has an almost flat plastron with a short, thick tail and a * shaped cloaca so I feel pretty comfortable calling her a "she". She definitely seems to be one of the Testudo species, and I'm pretty sure she's not Russian or Egyptian. She has five front claws and four back claws. I thought she might be a Mediterranean Spur-Thigh (Greek), but E. J. Pirog's book "Russian Tortoises" says that the spur-thigh females have a hinged plastron and my little lady does not appear to. Also, I haven't been able to find any pictures of what the actual "spur" is supposed to look like on that species' legs so I don't know if the few loose/hanging scales fit that description. Her plastron is 5.5 inches long and 4 inches wide, and from the base of her plastron to the peak of her carapace is just under 3.5 inches tall. She has a very skinny (about 1/8 inch) Nuchal scale over her neck and a single wide Supracaudal scale over her tail. Everything about this, including her general appearance, still makes me think that she's a Greek except that Pirog's chart says that Greek females have the hinged plastron. She could be a Marginated Tortoise as well based on the identifying traits, but all of the pictures I have found of Marginated Tortoises show very jagged marginals that almost look like the teeth of a gear and my tortoise definitely does not have those. Anyway, now that I've bored you with a description that may or may not be helpful, on to the pictures.. Thanks in advance for your help!
