Hello! This is Lucy. We are not sure what kind of tortoise she is and would really love to know so that we can give her everything she needs and wants! Thank you so much!

Hi and welcome,
Can you post some more pics from different angles and include the plastron?
I'm sure more knowledgeable members will be along to help you soon.
When you know for sure there are caresheets in the species specific section which will help you with correct care immensely.

Here is the care info:

Most of the care info you find will be old and wrong.

Where did you get it?
My sons teenage friend said his dad got it from a show. They didn’t know how to take care of her at all and she was almost dead. They told us that they were going to throw her away so we went and got her immediately. This is a pic of her when we got there to pick her up. I looked up just general tortoise care and we had an 80 gallon tank setup from my beardie that passed away recently. So we have her in there with proper heating and uvb BUT we’ve been only giving her collard greens. So that is why I’m here. I’d love to know what kind of tortoise she is so I can ensure she gets the proper nutrition. Thank you :) E6698600-D306-444F-9DFF-2DAA3BA531AF.png
