    I found a tortoise in my backyard, I want to help it. I posted on the neighborhood Facebook page about it in case he is already owned by somebody. If not, I want to at least help him. However, I do not know what is good for him to eat drink or what other environmental factors are necessary for him since I do not know the breed.

    Ok I see them now. Definitely not a tortoise. That's a water turtle. Looks like a slider.
