 I dont knkw what kind of tortoise i have

I have a pet tortoise that I was given from an aunt. She didn’t know what type it was and she has had it for quite some time but it seems quite fond of me so it became mine. Well after some mild searching I realize he almost certainly is in the wrong type of enclosure and I’m afraid he may not have the right diet but to be certain I want to know what type he is. Even after some searching I haven’t seen one that looks enough like him for me to be certain. I would say its similar to a Russian tortoise bit his shell isn’t as tall as those and his colors are more vibrant than that. Any help on how to take care of him even if I don’t know his type is appreciated.

Pictures would be helpful. You can upload a picture to Photobucket.com and link it over here. The RZ server is kinda funk right now.

A "LOT" depends on what GEOGRAPHIC/weather zone you live in.,.....No-No-NO "FRUIT",except a little piece of PUMPKIN,small piece of apple(no!!! seeds)’GRASSES,WEEDS,CACTI are the "MAIN" sustaining diet for "MAXIMUM" health and vitality.,....and please don’t forget "WATER",...."WATER",...and since it’s only a tortoise,don’t be afraid to "BREAK-DOWN" and "CONSIDER" bottled water.,....Better YET!!!!,save rain water in a small"CLEAN" pail.,...After all,its no big deal,and just wait and see,....WOW!!!,....your tortoise will follow you "EVERYWHERE,....and after quite a while(if "IT" knows you’re THEE source of that "OCCASIONAL" treat),......You got a friend for life,.....Trust me I KNOW.,....Good Luck!! BELIEVE ME,BELIEVE ME.Only 5 MIN. after I get home the tortoise is "SCRSTCHING" at the door and wants me to play,....Its "TRUE".,....You’ll see ,....Be patient.
