I can buy this poor guy, but does anybody know what he has? It starts from july, before he didn't have it.

I wouldn't buy this tortoise because of the over-shot under jaw. This is going to be a concern with this tortoise for the rest of its life. You will be having to trim off the excessive growth on the lower beak several times a year in order for the 'bite' to work.

Radiated Tortoise with significant undershot jaw. There will be misalignment of the beak leading to eating problems, it would need to be trimmed back to meet the upper jaw to promote better eating.
