Cyprus Tortoise

Postby McCool » Thu May 04, 2017 1:59 pm

Help! I came across a tortoise while walking in a wooded area in Cyprus. I can't find a lot of information about tortoises in Cyprus and would like to know if they live wild or has this one been abandoned. I left it alone and walked on but was unsure whether it needed to be rescued. Any help appreciated ...

No native Tortoises in Cyprus so either an escaped or abandoned pet..shame you have no photograph as we could identify species..I recall seeing Tortoises and Turtles for sale in a store in Paralimna only last year so definitely on the island.
