Hi, I have recently adopted an unwanted tortoise, please can anyone help me to identify its species and confirm my suspicions that it’s a boy. I have attached some pics and would be really grateful for any help.

Hi, and welcome!

He's definitely a boy, but as to the species, I'm no good at I.D.ing the mediteranean species. I'm going to guess hermanns, but let's send a shout out to @HermanniChris to get the correct answer.

My guess is same, some kind of Hermanns. Definitely looks like a boy.

It’s an Eastern Hermanns Tortoise (T. h. boettgeri) for sure
