Red-Footed Tortoise Compatibility

Sulatas, Redfoot, and Russian Tortoises
My fiancee' and I have two 10 month old Sulcata Tortoises (male and female) and one 4 year old Russian Tortoise (male), we just bought a Red-Footed Tortoise (female), we aren't sure how old she is.
As soon as we put her in the house with our other tortoises, she just sat there, and then after only 5 minutes or so, she tried biting at the male Sulcata's shell. We were wondering if this is because his shell looks like the pellet food the pet place fed her, or if she some how felt threat from him? And will this behavior continue? Will she start attacking the other 2 as well?
We love our tortoises very much, as if they are our children, and we treat them like that, and we will take her back to the store if we need to.
the picture was took at a weird angle and is a little bit misleading.
the 2 sulcatas on the left are the smallest, the red-fotted tortoise is the longest, and the russian is the biggest.
