    Hello all! I have been reading your forum for several months. I just got my first russian tortoise at thanksgiving as a Christmas present. I live in kentucky and have has several sliders n box turtles in my life. I never kept them long as they were wild (off the road) and was unsure, but I'm very excited to be a part of yalls community and look forward to answers to all my little questions and problems!
