    Too early to tell?

    good morning. I have just received two 2015 Russian tortoises. They were incubated to be females(I know that this is not a 100% guarantee by any means). They both hold their tails to the side a bit, just as my larger male does. Just wondering if this means that they are definitely males?

    Homemade Russian Tortoise table - ready for any suggestions!

    Thank you! My hip took a week to heal (still a bit sore). Probably didn't help that I had to run around with my second grade class all week. I will certainly take your advice about the water in the substrate. How often should I do that?

    Anyone Ever Been To Pet Supreme ??

    We have been there several times. Some of their turtles/tortoises look okay, but the Russian tortoises that we saw looked unhealthy and my son noticed that their eyes looked crusty.

    Hello. I spent my entire Labor Day weekend building this for my Russian Tortoise (pinched a nerve in my hip in the process). Tank seems to like it. Do you see anything that needs improving? Thanks!

    missing part of shell

    Squeeking/not eating

    I'm thinking the squeaking might be some sort of respiratory issue?
