    For being 13 years old, it's not all that bad and pretty normal for tortoises started back then. The way we know now have not been around all that long.
    I don't have anymore room for another tort and what they are asking is ridiculous.

    I did email them to let them know that the tort isn't as healthy as they think and that they are asking way too much. I also referenced the forum so they could learn what a healthy tort is suppose to look like and to learn some proper care.
