The law was enacted to prevent businesses from selling small turtles and is worded that way. Tortoises might be covered but most FDA inspectors ignore small tortoises in shops.
Also it's legal for anyone not associated with a business to sell turtles under 4 inches. So hobbyists can sell to other hobbyists, they just can't be sold as pets.
