Hi guys. I'm Anj and very new to all this.
I have a horsfield tortoise believed to be 2 or 3. The shop I got him from wasn't sure. Purchased on the 18.06.14
He's 12 cm in length. Sheldon is he's name. I've never had a had one before and quite excited.

Salutations.
Your tortoise is def. older than 2 o 3, looks to be a good size one. Get a good tail shot and we will sex the tortoise for you,if you wish.

Hello everyone's. Thanks for your replies. I have taken a pic from underneath, this is the only one I have so far and when he wakes and if he let's me take a better one.
Hope everyone is well.
How can I tell or find out the age? Many thanks.

The girl in the shop said he was male.

'Full grown' is about all we can tell you on the age.

Ok thanks everyone. Sheldon had a 1.5 hour run around the garden today. Trying to escape lol. He's getting very brave now.
