    Help in identifying the breed of my tortoise

    I am byfar not an expert, in fact I am new to this, but I did so searching on the internet and like everyone else it looks closest to a Sulcata, but is also similar looking to the Greek tortoises. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Feeling guilty...

    If you feel like you are not spending enough time with him and it makes you feel bad, take some time out of your week to devote attention to him.
