    Hmmm? I am suspect. That sure is a small tortoise for 56 years old. I am not so concerned about the diet, it is a common diet that is part of this species life....not ideal, but not horrible....but I have a huge problem with what we are trying to be led to believe is this tortoise age? that tortoise should be much much larger (even with a less than ideal diet)....

    It might be a Greek or a Texas. Hard to tell from the pictures.
