I don't know our tortoise's age, her weight is about 75lbs.
Her size.. I've been meaning to go out & measure her but I keep forgetting.
I'll do that soon, she's in her home right now, too hard to crawl in there & get measurements.

Her name is Destiny because fate brought her to us.
We don't know where she came from she was found on some rancher's property, shot 3 times with a .22 and then brought to Pet's Mart by the rancher. Employees there didn't know what she was, they just knew she wasn't native.
I ended up with her because they knew I had a place to keep her.
I was going to keep her for a few days until a home could be found. Although I wanted to keep her I just knew the hubby wouldn't so I seriously planned to find her a home.
He came home that first day & saw her, it was love at first sight. He said What is that? I said it's a sulcata, he said WOW IT'S COOL!!
5 years later she's our big baby girl.
She was horribly pyramided, sick, hurt but today after 5 years of free ranging & vet treatment she's very healthy.
Here's our baby:
