Defintely isnt an Elongated. Elongteds are also known as "lemon heads" because they have yellow heads, which this tort does not.

It is interesting though as I didn't think TGG grew that heavy, but seem to be corrected.

I sort of thought that if it wasn't an obvious marginated, and s/he looked and walked like a TGG but was that heavy as in coming in around 9lbs onwards , usually I will think whitei, (formerly Algerian or formerly Whitei now Algerian can never remember) because they are stunningly beautiful with spurs but because of their size Whitei - not common either.

And definitely not elongated. CB

I am very jealous. I use to have a 9lb tortoise and she was a very very special one, think it was because she was so large. I do miss her the most. CB
