As my torties are in hibernation I can't turn them over and check them thoroughly right now. Egyptian Dan said, from the photo i posted in 'pictures' that he thought mine were Testudo G T, but I bought them (and have a certificate from the breeder which labels them) as Testudo GG, from TGG parentage. I'm sure I could work this out using this thread, if they were awake - and then I could either determine if the breeder was incorrect originally or not ? I might need the help o you guys though, by posting pictures of the torties from different angles LOL.

Ahhhha, just found a better picture of them.....

So, is the general consensus that they are TGI ? and not TGG ?

They are almost certainly T.g.ibera. They are very similar to two of my females:

Aha, yes I saw a picture of your two the other day on the site and it was their picture that really convinced me that mine looked VERY similar ! I just can't believe that we have been believeing they were TGG all this time, based on the breeder - hence my still wittering on about identification.

Great Idea putting it up! I've never noticed the obvious differences until now!
Thanks

Hopefully I have done this right - and you can see apic of my little tort, unfortunately the stupid shop told me it was a SHE and so her name is LILY. But...since then, I have found that it is a HE. So... now that that is out of the way - can anyone confirm what species Lily is. I know its a spur as Lily has the spurs on the back legs at the top - so is this testudo gracea or testudo ibera..so sorry if i sound dumb and yes,....why didnt i ask earlier. I have always been led to beleive its a testudo gracea, med spur thigh. But some of the pics on this thread do not look like Lily. (gushes..with pride) check out her (sorry his) shiny shell, nothing I have done or put on it, he has always had this and have been told by some people that they have never seen such a shiny shell!! I also think the colours are beautiful, clean and sharp. any answers to breed would be so grateful.
