The tortoises of the genus Testudo are often taken for granted in American collections. These species include Hermann's, Greek, Marginated, Egyptian and Russian tortoises. While some species are rather common in the pet trade, the absolute truth is that any legitimately pure example of any Testudo tortoise is actually RARE. This is because so many have been thrown around and mixed up for ages. These tortoise species are a huge focus for us and our absolute favorites above all. For this reason and the for the sake of saving their purity, we've created a second website entirely dedicated to them, their understanding and proper identification. Please visit HermanniHaven.com today and spread the word about the truth behind this amazing tortoise genus.
