Testudinidae Testudo hermanni graeca marginata horsfieldii Over the last three years I had the opportunity to visit several commercial tortoise farms in Eastern Europe, such as: Slovenia, Czech Republic and Turkey. All farms have there strongholds in breeding huge numbers of Mediterranean tortoises of the genera: Agrionemys, Eurotestudo and Testudo (sensu stricto). Additionally exotic species, e.g.: Chersina angulata, Geochelone elegans and Malacochersus tornieri are bred. The different ways of keeping and breeding are compared as well as data of growth rates of a scientific research program are presented.
