It’s probably been living wild and would have been better left that way. Putting animals into captivity after they have lived wild is stressful for them. As they are not native to U.K. it’s possible it will end up being destroyed :(

Thanks and understand your POV. From a practical POV - any idea if needs freshwater or marine ? And will it eat same as tortoise (eg dandelions etc) ? Any help gratefully received.

Freshwater, it will have been using a nearby pond or canal/river. Will eat natural food but someone else will give advice on correct diet.
