Appearance and Behavior. Hermann’s tortoises have yellow, brown, or orange shells with striking black markings. It’s difficult to tell the eastern Hermann’s tortoise apart from the western Hermann’s tortoise. However, the western subspecies have a slightly higher domed shell.
Typically, the western Hermann’s tortoise (Testudo hermanni hermanni) is smaller and vividly colored. In addition, genetically pure western Hermann’s tortoises are very rare these days. The eastern Hermann’s tortoise (Testudo hermanni boettgeri) is usually larger and is marked by less defined contrast.
Adults usually range from 13-20 cm (5-8 in). Adults of the western subspecies, Testudo hermanni boettgeri, may reach up to 28 cm (11 in) in length, weighing 3-4 kg (7-9 lb). Sexual dimorphism is moderate, with females on average 12% larger than males.
