    As promised, I have completed the newest and most up-to-date care guide for Greek tortoises (Testudo graeca ssp).
    Special thanks to Yvonne for helping me properly post such a big article. The guide busts some common myths and misconceptions about tortoise keeping while going into detail about indoor and outdoor housing, predator protection, diet, breeding and understanding the subspecies. I hope it helps anyone who has questions about this amazing group of tortoises. The guide can now be viewed at the very top of this forum in the pinned posts or by following this link: https://tortoiseforum.org/threads/greek-tortoise-care-guide.174622/#post-1729853
