Dear Brad, I have moved my herd of T. marginata, T. graeca-ibera, and "Russians" from the North to the South of the State of California and found them to be hardy and adaptable, even to the lowland tropical desert where we now reside. Any of the above and probably Hermann's would be reasonable choices. All have great, "outgoing" personalities, eat a varied diet of plants and weeds, many of which you can grow yourself or gather,attain reasonable size and not difficult to breed, reasonable price, etc. Mine use artificial burrows during the intense heat of Summer here, where they aestivate. I love all the above, and you will too. Good luck, Vic H., Imperial Valley, CA.
