    You're going to have to be patient. The people we need to help you haven't been online. They're probably busy with their day-to-day lives. But if we wait, they WILL come and help you when they are able.

    Sorry for my absence. Work has been crazy. But better late than never :)

    The lighter of the two is definitely Testudo graeca terrestris (commonly called "Golden Greek).

    The other one with the darker markings around the scutes is either a Southern Turkey ibera, or it could be an "ibera x terrestris" mix from the city area of Mardin, where both of these subspecies commonly overlap in the wild.
