Yellow footed tortoise


Some type of tortoise about 8"-10" long very friendly may have been a runaway pet.

You were both correct. I ended up finding the owner who was very grateful considering she was moving out of state in two days.

I agree with Livan's comment - it's definitely someone's pet. Hopefully they can be reunited or someone gets the tortoise to a better home.
