Don't ask how old she is

Just count the rings on her carapace. Venezuelans call it morrocoy and English speakers call it a red-footed tortoise.

This is one of the animals the Catholic church in America decided to call "fish" so that people could eat them during holy week (another being the Capibara). No, I haven't eaten morrocoy, they are just too cute for this urbanite. Besides: they are over-hunted.
