Thank you, after researching more I agree, I have sent my aunt a message to give to the estate (where the tortoise was seen), for people to take more informative pictures if they see any tortoises especially because it's so hard to spot the little ones.Going back to the original question of the post on the ID of that tortoise... I agree with you. The shape of the first vertebral is much more boulengeri. But also the stubby nuchal, and more importantly, femoralis are noted for having a very short seam between the 4th and last vertebral and this tortoise does not have that. So, although the location seems to more indicate femoralis, I am much more inclined by what I do see to believe it boulengeri. Counting toes on the front feet would have been a great way to tell, but too late for that.
