The natural habitat of Testudo sp Tortoise includes semi-arid scrub and Mediterranean forest, to the verges of semi-desert, where it can be found inhabiting outcrops of succulent Euphorbia. This habitat is subject to marked seasonal fluctuations in vegetation - with peak availability of edible plants in winter and early spring. In southern areas, T. g. graeca is active throughout the warm winter period, and aestivates through the hot summer. In northern areas of its range, this cycle is reversed with a winter hibernation and summer activity period. In captivity, this tortoise requires a spacious, dry, well drained pen with adequate natural graze.
