Default ID and sex of my spur thighs

The bigger one is not a Horsefield, she/he has spurs on her legs, as you can see

Hi Chloe,
Your bigger one is I'm afraid a Horsfields tortoise, which do have spurs, a nail on the end of the tail and 4 claws on the front legs. It's a female too
The second tortoise looks like a male Tunisian greek to me, T.graeca nabeulensis.

Danny
