I would think it's a Spur thigh but what subspecies, im not sure, sorry. (Except to say I don't think it's a Tunisian due to no "yellow splodge", on its head!)

Sandy used to keep & I think breed them, so she will have a good idea.

Where does it say it's from on its papers that might help narrow it down a bit.

As sandy says I'm going towards an ibera and I was thinking female but still a bit young to be deffinate just yet.
I do have some greaca greaca that look similar but unless you know exactly where they have come from you will struggle to get a 100% accurate ID.

Gorden, I use the markings on the plastron to say whether ibera or graeca. In over 36yrs they are nealy always sploggy markings :0) where as graecas are nearly always black/grey all over.
Maybe I am wrong, but I have kept both species in the past, and used that as a guide along with carapace colour.
