Aww! You'll have fun with it I'm sure!
I'm sure you'll love to watch it move around and stuff, it looks kinda interesting to me.

Oh boy! This guy will be a lot of fun, but he also needs a lot of care, especially in his baby years. What species is it? Does she have a heat lamp basking area set up? What is she planning on feeding it? Never feed any tortoise a diet of Iceberg Lettuce. Ever. It has no nutritional value, and he will end up sickly, weak, and soft-shelled. A MUCH better choice for a base diet is Romaine Lettuce, Green Leaf Lettuce, or Red Leaf Lettuce. Spinach is excellent as well. The darker in color it is, the better for your new pet. You will need to feed him lots of other stuff to after you guys research he species needs, but this is a very good base. :unsure:

Post a picture if you can get one, too! <_<

Baby torts need a lot of CALCIUM. I can not stress that enough. I ended up with a Sulcata tort from my mom. She was clueless as how to care for it. So this poor things is all pyramided up. Not pretty and very unhealthy.
Every speecees needs specific care. Do a lot of reading up and join a Yahoo group about your speecees at the very least.

I have had a box turtle for more than 2 decades. She does not require much maintenance, thus she is still around. Torts need food pretty much every day. Kind of high maintenance.

My in house turtle pen.

Anyway, good luck
:)
