Mesopotamian?

She's at least 3 or 4, old enough to have laid eggs at least once. 840 grams and 16.2 straight carapace length.

If anyone has ideas as to what's going on with her eyes, I'd love to hear them!

Here is a link to the health thread I posted:

Also, yes I know straw/hay is terrible - we just got her and I'm changing things slowly to minimize stress. Coco coir bricks are soaking at this very moment. :)

This is not a Terrestris but looks like a Testudo Graeca Ibera to me?

She is large to be 3 or 4 to be honest. My THB is 8 and has approx the same weight but she was raised outdoors.

No idea about the eyes but she beak needs trimming though.

Nice tort

Cheers,

Green tea, nothing more... Don't mind me it is not my native language!! Or doesn't that sound believable? Lol

Just think if we’d stopped once we found green tea? No box turtles, way fewer types of pond turtles, no snapper turtles it just goes on and on.

You guys are killin me. I had to give up coffee and matcha a few months ago - can't tolerate the acid. :(

Thanks for the input - my friend is a vet tech at a clinic that sees exotics and she's going to help me trim her beak! :)
