Greek Tortoise Size
Depending on the subspecies, Greek tortoises will grow to between 5 and 8 inches. Some examples of T. g. Ibera may attain 10 or 11 inches, but this is rare. Male Greek tortoises are usually smaller than females, but again, there are exceptions. At hatching, most Greek tortoises are no more than an inch in length. They can grow rapidly when overfed and reports of them reaching 4 inches in less than two years is common, but not recommended.
