A fellow tortoise man found this in Michigan walking around a used car lot, no Craigslist or posters saying someone lost him so I'm assuming it was a dump off, anyway, any clue what kind this guy is? ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1474416007781989

Looks like a Greek to me. As far which sub species Chris will have to chime in for that one. Do you know if it's in good standings? Has he found a home yet? Greeks are wonderful tortoises.

Without a doubt it's a Greek tortoise. Subspecies is a little hard to tell but looks to be T. graeca terrestris or what we inaccurately refer to as "Golden Greeks" here in the USA.
