My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet Tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and Reptile rescue.
Can you tell me which sub species of Spur Thighed tortoise you have? Is it Testudo iberas, Testudo graeca graeca or another subspecies?
If you pinch a back foot does the tortoise pull the foot away?
If you poke the tail area does he respond?
Are the eyes sunken in?
Any bubbles from nose or mouth?
