They're definitely not Testudo hermanni hermanni, they're either Testudo hermanni boettgeri or Testudo hermanni hercegovinensis. A plastron shot will tell for sure.

Thanks Alex and ME SHELL but do you have any ideas on the sex i've been told they are both females. I alreday have a four year old Thb male and a 1 yr old possibly female Thb so i want these pair in the photo to be female to make a trio of 4yr olds by next year.

They do look to be both females T.h.boettgeri on the left, T.h.hercegovinensis on the right.

Thanks Danny, am i right in thinking i connot mix subspecies due to chance of cross breeding? should i only buy the thb to be able to mix with my other thb's, also how can you tell the difference

Here you go Nikki http://forums.shelledwarriors.co.uk/...pic.php?t=3264
If you just have T.h.boettgeri, than I'd stick with that female.
