Hello All! I have been getting a lot of good advice from this forum since I got my tortoise 2 months ago. I have wanted a Hermann's since I was 21 and at 31 it became a reality. They were not particularly easy to find where I am finally found one in a reptile hobby store (i know. Probably not as good as a breeder or adopting). Anyways my question is can any one tell me if his shell is a problem on his back scute? It seems to be divided up and I don't know what to google to find more info. Lastly, i have looked over all the identification documents and still cannot decide. Could he be a mix? He seems to have some but not all the qualities of a western. The price i bought him for seems to be too low to be a western though. Plus im in the US where i hear theyre rare. Thank you all for your help and advice!
