    Beak trimming

    Mikey my male Russian tortoise had his beak trimmed this morning. He was much easier to handle than I thought he would be, although he still was not happy with me about it. After a warm soak and a little extra treat he seemed to forgive me! It seems all my male Russian tortoise ps that I have...

    New girl Zia

    We adopted Zia about a month ago from a member on here and she is doing great! She has warmed right up to us and comes out of hiding as soon as she hears me walking out to her pen. She is eating healthy and seems to be enjoying spending her days outside. Thanks again @Zia Girl for letting us...

    First hatchling of the year

    This summer I was lucky enough to add 3 new female Russian tortoises to our home. I was very surprised when all 3 of them decided to start laying clutches so soon, I had figured it would take them some adjusting first. Unfortunately all of the eggs seemed to be unfertile until big Bertha...

    Housing two Russians together indoors

    I would not house 2 male tortoises together, they get very aggressive towards each other.

    New family member!

    So glad we were able to adopt this lovely girl. Ellie is starting to warm up to her new home. Keeping her in an indoor enclosure to keep a good eye on her and make sure she isn't too stressed after her trip, can't wait until I can introduce her to her section of the outdoor enclosure.
