Yes it is an African Spurred Tortoise. Unfortunately some people will get them as pets unaware of how large they get and then later on no longer want them. I think theses are the third largest tortoises in the world.

It looks like an African Spurred Tortoise, AKA Sulcata Tortoise.

Removed from the mission 'Signs of Wildlife' because it is not a 'sign' but is 'actual' wildlife.
