    Someone on my FB page found a very young Galop in south Florida. Let me know if anyone is missing a tortoise and I will get you the contact info.

    Could be an Aldabra. since I do not keep them, I have a hard time distinguishing them. They just look like a really big black tortoise to me.

    Never mind, sorry for the waste of time, tortoise was never missing. The person posting either did it on purpose to draw attention to himself or chose very poorly worded info leading to believe he had found the tortoise. Either way, no reason to comment further on this.

    Yipes! Some people. If you want, I'll close the thread so no more comments can be posted.
