I've seen a number of Greek tortoises on the market lately that aren't the standard Testudo Ibera fare. These Golden Greeks and "Normal" Greeks seem to be more desert oriented. Among the ones I have purchased, I've also noticed different combat and mating rituals (biting versus butting, distinct mating croaks, for example). They all seem to share similar physical features, but the variations are such that one could even make an argument for divergent species. In the interest of protecting the genetic integrity of these new arrivals, does anyone have any information as to where these tortoises originated?
