This little critter small! He's only 2 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. We found him sitting on a stump in our yard. Strangely enough, the stump is over a foot high, so there is no possible way that the tortoise could have gotten up there on it's own. Someone must have placed him up there. So before we left, we carefully placed him on the ground so he could go into the woods as he pleased.
