    Hi. This is my first post :)

    Well, I was wondering if anybody can help me identify my tortoise. I just got it and I want to know the breed so that I can care for it properly. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    It looks like a redfoot,but it's hard to tell from the pic.Do you have any more pictures?

    That is a baby texas tortoise. They can be mistaken as a redfoot because of the shell but as you can tell it doesn't have the yellow scales on its head or red scales on its feet.
