No offense, but that doesn't narrow the field. The only Testudos that live in Europe are Testudo hermanni (Hermanns, all subspecies included), Testudo marginata (the Marginated confined to Greece and certain islands), and Testudo graeca graeca (the Moorish or Morrocan Tortoise that extends into Spain). If you want to go so far as consider Testudo ibera of Turkey among these, fine. However, the Middle-East is the mystery to me. I'm interested in specific countries of origin and variation. Anyone out there know anything?
