We believe the turtle we found is a spur thigh tortoise. I am curious to know how old he is and if he is a he. And what i should do we live in Montana and believed someone dumped him on the side of the road...Are weather tends to stay cool we are worried about how warm he needs to stay as well.

I'm wondering how you got this tortoise home.

Read this page on how to sex a tortoise.

As for age, I can't say.

Search for animal rescue agencies in your area for information about your options. You are correct in being concerned about the fact that this animal will need special care in cold weather.

Keep it slow and steady.
