:Someone must have lost his pet. Please make an honest effort to reunite the tortoise with it's owner before you decide to keep it. I know how I would feel if I lost a tortoise.

:::I have been checking for lost signs both in the neighborhood he was found in and in the local papers lost section. I will also contact animal control Monday to see if anyone has called looking for him. Sadly here in Florida we have an extreme amount of exotics that aresimply turned loose when the owners get tired of them.
:::My neighbor found a red foot in the middle of the road so I now have him. It has been two days now and he really doesnt seem to be eating much. I have given him Romaine lettuce, mustard greens, spinach leaves, carrot slivers, apple, grapes. Any other suggestions or is it just letting him get used to a new place? I currently have him in a 4 x 4 X-pen attached to a small crate with the door tied open with wood chips in it. He seems to like the crate. If I cant find his owner I would like to keep him. He is an adult male I believe. Will I eventyually be able to let him roam our securely fenced in yard? I am worried that he will forget where his "house" and food /water dishes are. BTW, we .live in Florida so I believe the climate should be fine for him with the rare exceptional cold night.

::Just try to cut out the spinach. And if you let him get used to your yard he will start eating. He just needs time to adjust. Florida is perhaps the best place in the us to keep red foots.
