    You need to post pics so we know what kind of turtles or tortoises your talking about. If they are native animals it's best to release them back to the wild.

    Those are leopard tortoises. Care is same as Sulcatas I think. I don't keep them so I can't help you much. @wellington can probably give you more info.

    Put them back where you found them. I think it's illegal to take tortoises from the wild in South Africa.

    If you found them in the wild put them back in the same spot and never take from the wild unless it's a life or death situation. Leopards live in the wilds of Africa and should be left in the wild!
