Howdy! We need some identification help with our tortoise. We believe he is land-dwelling, single-hinged plastron, hidden-necked... He has red ring around his eyes and red/orange colors on the plates of his legs. His carapace is pretty much olive green. We found him outside of Houston. Any ideas? Also, how do you tell their age/sex? Thanks!

Sounds like perhaps a three toed box turtle. They can be colorful throughout the face and legs...but they tend to have a shell that is a drab olive greem.
