    Hi everyone

    Am new to tortoises but not new to exotic pets, have had all sorts in the past.

    Have been given a chance to rehome a tortoise but unable to identify it so maybe someone can help and maybe even tell me if male or female

    Looks like a Russian horse field tortoise. Could you take a picture of the under side of the tortoise and it’s tail? Welcome to the forum!

    Looks like a little male there, and it is a Russian tortoise.
