    I am looking to buy this Aldabra in India (Photograph and videos attached / link given below). Hatch date is not known but I have been told that it would be around seven months old. Kindly share your views on whether it appears to be a healthy tortoise.

    To me this aldabra tortoise looks healthy because:
    - good and vigorously eating,
    - perfect shell, smooth with wide growth-lines
    - thick front legs ( a sign of a well eating tortoise )
    - clear eyes and nose
    - the tortoise is moving fast, trying to escape from your hand
