Thinking of adopting this fella but concerned about the red & white spots on shell. Is this septicemia / rot? Should I adopt or will I be signing up for a world of pain & expense?

Also any help in age/gender/species identification would help.

Thanks for your help in advance!

I would wait for an expert. If you can get pictures of the tail and red spot. Where are you possibly going to be getting it from? There is damage to the top of the tortoise. Good luck

Well, number one, it's not a desert tortoise, if that's what you thought you were adopting. I think it's a full grown Hermanns, and male. He'll need to be set up in his own environment. I don't see the red you refer to, and the white is nothing to be concerned about.
