Golden Greek Books

Golden Greek literature

Books below contain info about Greek tortoises (Testudo graeca ssp). Unfortunately, many Testudo related books are written in German, Italian, or French and have not been translated into English. These books are not shown in any particular order and listing a book on this page does not necessary mean I am endorsing it. Click on the book titles for full info.

None of these books are specific to Greek tortoises, but care for Testudo species is very similar. Much of the care info for Hermann's and Russians also applies to Greeks.
