I have a BEAUTIFUL tortoise but I do not know what kind he is, Frank is about the size of a softball with a yellowish green and brown undershell. His shell at the edges kind of curl up like a pie shell, his head is yellow with black eyes and ears he has very long legs with prehistoric looking feet and is very active. I feed him fresh fruit and veggies. He is very loveable and even lets me kiss him on the head!
Thanks for any help I can get.
