I just purchased this tortoise from a breeder as a subadult (6" female marginated tortoise. I've been looking at her closely the past 2 days and am wondering if she may not in fact be a female ibera Greek, or maybe a hybrid marginated-Greek.

I'm a tortoise biologist but not a Testudo expert. Can someone who really knows these 2 species have a look and give me your opinion? I won't name the breeder; even if I'm correct I believe it was an honest mistake.

thanks
