My tortoise was adopted about two weeks ago. The shop where I adopted him gets their torts from a breeder, and claimed he was about a year old, maybe a few months. I asked them to tell me his gender but claimed they wouldn't know from being that young. I know that pet stores aren't the most trustworthy and I think he might be older, 5-8 years? In case he is older, is it still possible for me to create a bond with him? This is my first tortoise so all comments welcome. I'm still not 100 percent sure about his gender but if you know please tell me so I might have to change his/her name from Luigi to Lucy!
I have a couple photos, but I couldnt get his tail in (he holds his tail to the side, if that helps)

I'm sorry, but in order for ME to see your pictures, it tells me to "sign in." As I don't have a Google picture account, I'm unable to sign in.
