Had a person contact me knowing that I have desert tortoises I take care of & have on my property, he starts telling me that he had found a tortoise on the 14 freeway in Lancaster California. He saw it last second and swerved to avoid it and slammed on his brakes and ran back and got it before it got hit. He brought it to me and we've had it for a couple weeks now and are having trouble getting him to eat. Just by the way he acts I can tell he was someone's pet, so it makes me wonder if he escaped or had been dumped. I'm pretty certain he's a desert tortoise but we're starting to definitely believe that he's not native to our desert. He shows no interest in the same food that we feed are desert tortoises, we got him to drink water and had him soak for a while and he definitely enjoyed that. He's even eating the tops of some weeds in his enclosure area outside that I got that's the only thing that I've seen him eat. If somebody can help me identify the type of tortoise he is I'd be able to find the food he likes.
