Laura, send the pics right over and I'll be able to tell you what they are, just make sure you get a plastron and head shot for me.

Thanks that was excellent, so I just have to remember that thh have a longer femoral seam than pectoral
So I would say Sherman is a thb and Shelly is a thh. Am I right?

Laura actually messed up the first 2 names Michelle The first picture is Shelly and the second is Sherman. Shelly and Shermaine are T.h. boettgeri. Sherman is a T.h.hermanni, so you did get it right.

Hi great info u put up there, i think i have a thh because all the pics match up, i was just wondering would it be ok to have a thh with a thb? coz i was thinking of getting a new tort but he is a thb and wasnt sure if he would bully my thh coz of the size difference, any info would be appreciated, thanks
