    I think it's just there for size reference.

    Is this the same turtle as you show on your other thread? Can we please see the bottom side?

    It appears to be a nice Kinixys belliana, or Bell's Hingeback Tortoise from what I can see. More detailed pictures would be needed to tell the subspecies.

    From what I see, and your location, it looks like a Kinixys spekii Definitely a Kinixys as @zovick stated. More pictures and if you could clean the shell as much as possible to see patterns, would help.
