Testudo graecaGreek Tortoises are beautiful creatures with typically olive and dark brown carapaces. They are relatively small tortoises that only grow to be about 7 in. long. Greek Tortoises enjoy a dry climate with suitable places for them to take refuge and relax. They are strict herbivores and require a high-fiber, low-protein diet for optimum health.
Greek Tortoises require shallow water to cool off and soak in and a nice area for basking. Greek Tortoises are great tortoises because they require low humidity levels, making them easier to care for indoors than other tortoise species. With proper care and love, your Greek Tortoise will live for over 50 years!
