Hi, i'm new to this forum and i've been reading a lot of stuff here, but i'm still confused about my tortoise.

I found this little guy in the streets almost getting killed by a stray dog, he/she is fine with me now, but what kind of tortoise he is?

I live in the northeast of mexico








Thanks!

In northeast Mexico, that would probably be Gopherus berlandieri. I could be wrong... Its not a sulcata.

That's some sort of desert Tortoise. Definitely not a Sulcata.
