I still haven't found out their subspecies can someone help me out pls?
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.
