 Please help ID this tortoise

Because 6 years ago we lost our darling desert tortoise of 20 years (who was a male about 65 years now) and are still searching for him, our neighbors in Granada Hills CA called us to pick up this tortoise that wandered into their yard from the golf course. I now think it is an African Sultana but if you could confirm this for me and see if you see anything else from the photos, that would be appreciated. Thanks so much!

That my friend is indeed a Sulcata tortoise! but there is some slight pyramiding on his scutes though.
