The Greek tortoise is more commonly known as the Spur-thighed tortoise and is one of the Mediterranean species of tortoise. This is a hibernating breed. It is a more commonly kept species of tortoise within the UK. Spur-thighed tortoises are within the medium sized family of tortoise breeds and can live up to 50 years or more and are renowned for their extensive lifespan. High UV lighting is required and low humidity. On average, an adult Spur-thighed tortoise will grow to approximately 8-10 inches (20-25cms). However, this may vary in individuals.
This species is listed as Annex A and is required to be microchipped and have the accompanying Article 10 CITES certificate to be legally sold. We will provide this certificate and it must stay with the tortoise throughout its life.
