    Hi Ernie, it is a African Spurred Tortoise / Sulcata. Beautiful looking too! What country was this?

      Sorry for the delay, checked a few times after post but no replies so stopped checking. I saw him/her on a country road in Tehama County outside of Paskenta, CA. near my home. By near l mean about 7 miles from my place. Cattle country, gravel toad, big ranches, 1000 acres plus. I was blown away when l saw him. Biggest tortoise l've ever seen. Don't know if it's a runaway or some body dumped him. I went out the next day to try and find him but no luck. Thanks for the reply
