He was with some people that really did not know how to care for her/ him. I’m not getting it in the right temp and regular soaks. I do a baby food soak and it’s getting energy from it but I don’t see it eating. Now from not using its mouth to eat its starting to get cracked...need some new detectors as I can’t find a vet in my area for reptiles..

Here is the current and correct care info. Getting the tortoise into the right conditions will greatly help things:

Get it warmed up and hydrated, and the appetite will probably come back.

OK I’m not even sure if it’s the kind there saying it is and should I be worried about the attack with a bearded dragon?

Thank you all, we’ll try and figure out the next step...
Contact FWC, your local herpetological society, or a rescue that deals with reptiles, and let them know that you think you wound up with a gopher tortoise. Make sure you let them know about the bearded dragon.

DON'T just release it. There are some diseases transmissible between different types of reptiles, such as bearded dragons and tortoises. Gopher tortoise populations can be particularly susceptible to diseases introduced via released individuals.

Florida Wildlife Commission FWC 888-483-4681 has an amnesty program where you can surrender any unwanted or illegal animal. I can’t remember the name of the man who runs the program but leave a message and explain you have a animal to surrender under the amnesty program and you shouldn’t have a problem. My sister has dealt with the program.
