Hello. My sister was given this tortoise a few days ago. They told her it was 23 yrs old and gave her some questionable care instructions. Now that i've looked over your site they seem to be very, very poor instructions! We've made an appointment with a vet for next week, but we'd like to know what species she/he is so we can start to make a proper habitat. Thanks!

The vet informed us that she is a Chinese Box Turtle, not a tortoise after all. We've picked up a few books and read up on her care from the internet, but any tips would be greatly appreciated :)
