Hi, my husband and I just purchased a home in Southern California. While we were in escrow the previous home owner informed us (through his realtor) that the house possibly came with a tortoise he hadn’t seen in a bit. The tortoise has finally made an appearance and he/she is the cutest little thing! I was hoping some of you could help me figure out what kind of tortoise this is and tips for appropriate care? The tortoise shell looks a little dry and too smooth so I’m not sure if that’s normal or if there’s anything I can do to help the little guy? Wondering how big it’ll get and if it should be kept indoors or out. Here are a few pics.
