Default Identification, please help.

Hi Guys,
This is my first post but I guess I will be a very active member .
I live in Malta and bought those 4 cute babies form a local breeder. They are 4 months old now. He has owned their parents for 15 years now and can not tell me what exactly supspecies they are. For geographical proximity to Tunisia I suspect they might be Furculachelys Nabeulensis, but the best would be to consult it with a wider group of ppl who are familiar with this subject.
Pics below.

1 concern is the rock in the first pic well supported would hate for it to fall onto one of the babys.

Thank you for the compliments
The rocks are light, limestone ones, well supported. At the moment my babies got a new tort table and the cave is even more solid.
They must feel save now because a few last nights spent in open area of their habitat, just next to the basking lamp (it is off for the night obviously). I hope they will coexist in a friendly atmosphere, so far so good

Pictures of the parents is the only real way to tell what subspecies they are
