    Found this guy(or girl) abandoned in the park. Looks like a Marginated but has spikeyer looking legs.

    Hi @PLesage and a very warm welcome to the forum. :)

    A gorgeous little tort! :<3:

    I would have said a Greek tort, but I'm not sure, am no tort.

    @Tom

    please help identify this cute tort. Thank you both.:D

    Yes, you most certainly do!! (belong here, that is)

    Nice-looking little Marginated tortoise. What a strange thing to find. That's not the usual 'found' tortoise. Are you planning to keep it?

    We're keeping it. My son has always wanted one and has named him Mr. Tuckels. Now just trying to figure out an enclosure for him.
