Hello! My friend has inherited this tortoise, I have 2 Hermanns but I am not sure what species this is. Possibly a Greek? Can anyone help please?

Thanks

Dave

This is a graeca graeca probably algerian. The diet is a bad one, they need weeds and flowers not tomato:0(

Yes def remove all that tomato and cauliflower and if using hay/straw for bedding, consider changing substrate to deep soil.
