Greetings, i was under the impression she was a Hermann's, that's what i was told when she was given to me. The more i look into it the more i question this, she has no spike on her tail. Thanks

Hermanni usually have split scute also at back and a little more high domed. somewhat Beautiful tort - check for spurs on back legs, I agree with Gordon, Ibera CB

It was a one off with the cabbage, i feel really foolish because i do generally check the tortoise table site. No spurs on her legs or around the back i am afraid
