Aaahh they're lovely,I can see why your saying Tunisian, but I don't think I can give an expert opinion. Super little torts.
The size would be right for Tunisians

They are badly grown, so very hard to id.
I agree they do look tunisian, except the top one has the wrong shape at the rear end.
Personally I would email AH at the tortoise trust for an accurate ID.

The top one has had a bit of a run in with a dog also they have been rescued for not ideal conditions

Do you think they look like the one I have from Murcia as the head markings are similar?
