    Hey gang, been busy making the newest video on identifying Hermann's tortoise subspecies with up to date info. Took a while but it's done and up now on you tube and both of my sites. Direct link for it is:

    http://youtu.be/TiohZj50Hg0

    Would be great if we could make this a sticky with the other info above as it's very informative, more so than the diagrams I've done and the last Hermann's video as well. It goes very in depth, try not to fall asleep!
    Enjoy.
    -Chris

    Hi
    I watched your video, it's great, very interesting! I thought based on the info that my two year old is an Eastern...she's from Macedonia which would be correct. But she does have a keyhole marking. I'd be really grateful if you'd confirm for me and also (as far as possible) if you think she is a 'she'! I'm a beginner so it's quite tricky to tell. PS the photos were taken at bath time so her colours are somewhat enhanced.
    Many thanks

    Hi, would you be able to identify my hermann? Also can you tell if it's male/female? I did get told he was a male.

    It's an eastern Hermann's (boettgeri). And sexing is not possible at this age.
