    Sulcata tortoise adoption experience

    I’m not sure if this is helpful. I’ve been rescuing Russian Tortoises for about a year or two now, and I make sure the past families have my phone number for the purpose of sending update pictures.

    Stubborn Sulcata

    When I get a rescue russian that only eats lettuce and will not touch anything else, I will withhold food from them for a couple days. After that they will always eat whatever I put in front of them, and continue to eat what I provide. I am unsure what others on the forum think of this method.
