    Gender reveal on the Hermann’s tortoise?

    This is the tortoise that I have been waiting on a sex id for… what do y’all think? Male or female? She/he has started to show male like characteristics like marching about the enclosure and just being more active in general. What’s the vote? 😂

    How long do Russian tortoises live?

    Hey all, I am curious as to how long Russian tortoises live? I have an 18 year old RT and his vet said he will live around 30? Is this correct information or does anyone have reports of theirs living longer? I know my Hermann’s can live into their 100s but is this true for Russians? Thank you all.
