Quite possibly a name change could be in order, Guy.
I'm sure Danny will be able to tell you for sure though.

I agree with Emma Rocky is a Hermanns, Testudo hermanni boettgeri and a female.

Guy.
Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like, Guy. That's what the forum is for.
It sounds as if you've been busy this weekend. I'm sure Vera didn't eat initially because it was strange and unsettling for her coming to a new home but great news that she's tucking into her food now.
Lots of luck with them.
