Found a tortoise today

    Today, my sister and I were in the woods and we found a tortoise. We followed it at a distance and froze whenever it was looking at us and stopped, probably before it might recluse into its shell. After a while it had walked in a big circle, within 1 foot of us (we were knelt down and motionless for several minutes) and it went back where we saw it come from.

    I live in central florida and was wondering if land tortoises normally live here, or might this be a pet that grew too big for somebody? It was longer than a foot in length. I'm tempted to go back tomorrow to find it again and maybe help give it food, but am not sure if this is a good or bad idea either. :/
