It appears you went offline without seeing my request for more information. I don't want to make you wait any longer, so I'm going to attach a picture for you to look at. From your description, I think you may have a box turtle, not a tortoise. The photo I'm sending is of a box turtle. They are not all colored alike - the patterns on the head, legs, and shells can be different. Take a look at the picture and see if it looks similar. If it doesn't, let me know, and we'll proceed from there. Anna
