Hermann's Tortoise is a small tortoise with subspecies native to mainly coastal areas of
Mediterranean Spain through to the Balkans and, ironically, through much of Greece (coastal and inland).
It is common in Greece (together with the Marginated Tortoise) and is prevalent through coastal Mediterranean Europe,
but the "Greek Tortoise" is a different species (also called the Spur-thighed), hardly found in Greece and the "Mediterranean Tortoise"
is usually a term that includes most "Testudo" species, including Hermann's, the Spur-thighed, the Egyptian and others.
