Hermann's Tortoise

The Hermann’s tortoise is the third species of the European tortoises and is right in the middle in size between the Russian Tortoise and the Marginated tortoise. In my opinion it is the prettiest of the three. The shell is marbled with yellow, green, brown, and black. It is a really friendly little tortoise that does quite well in captivity. This tortoise also goes dormant during the winter and like the Marginated tortoise will become active on warm winter days.
