Default Wild moroccan tortoises

Scroll down there are 18 pictures and videos!

So we just got back from Morocco - our two torts have been well looked after by my Mum.

While away we hired a car and drove through the desert around Marrakech (highly recommended!) and Atlas mountains and came across a couple of quite small spur thighed tortoises on the road - from what I read the North African T. graeca marrokensis are usually less than 20cm when fully grown.

The first was in a remote area and very dusty - I loved the way the black eyes stand out from the almost white head. We just stopped and let him make his own way off the road. The second was on a main road near Essouiara and had to stop the traffic to put him across to the side he was trying to cross to!
