The Russian Tortoise 
Agrionemys horsfieldii ( Testudo horsfieldii)  

Shell Variety

There is a wide variety of shell coloration, shape and size. These are some in my colony.

 I mark the shells of the males with White-Out for easy identification.   The "W" is actually an "M". Click on a picture to view it full size.
