Default id PLEASE

I think I have it right...this time...today I was given 5 beautiful tortoises...they all have a story...but have been nursed to health by a special lady who sadly is too ill to care for them now....

Number 1 hatched in 1998 UK CB ...microchipped.....TGI male..my guess?? Region?









Number 2 hatched in 1998 CB UK...microchipped....TGI male...my guess?? Region?









Number 3 is around 60 plus yrs old and I guess a male TGI.?...could someone id the region he is from as he is half the size of my big male.









Number 4, is going to someone else as I do not keep horsfields







Number 5 has a new home already as this was arranged in advance.

I may rehome the two younger males....but not just yet, I am in a quandry as yet...if anyone was interested if you pm me...I will keep details.

You do Helen I would say Turkey for 1 and 2 and European mainland for 3, probably Greece or European Turkey because of his size.

Helen the first two are captive bred so unlikely the parents are from the same region I would worry about there locality they are Tgi and as all tgi share them same DNA structure it wouldnt matter if they were bred from how they were paired.

Third animal is the same as my Terrible Timmy and agree mainland Europe

The horsfield looks to be a young male and a handsome blonde chap he is
