    Questioning the sex of my 'female' Russian.

    She just needed to get comfortable I think. She's devouring whatever I put in front of her now.

    Questioning the sex of my 'female' Russian.

    I'm using topsoil with coco coir mixed and and I stupidly mixed in spagnum moss which Tom reminded me isn't a good idea so I'm picking it out everyday rather than change out the whole thing.

    Questioning the sex of my 'female' Russian.

    She finally ate!!I found dandelion greens at my grocery store today (now that they're finally growing outside)and I almost didn't buy them then I thought those kinda resemble romaine leaves.

    Questioning the sex of my 'female' Russian.

    So I don't need to worry about eggs! Did you read the bit about taking a dandelion flower into her mouth, pulling her head in and not really knowing what to do with her front legs? What could that be about? She was being fed a giant romaine leaf everyday.

    Questioning the sex of my 'female' Russian.

    She put her little tail right to the side so this was the best I could get... Anddd, she( or he) tried to eat. I picked some dandelion flowers thinking the bright colors would be enticing.
