    I think I did something terribly wrong. I introduced my female to my male, and she took a bite at his face. This is the aggression talked about commonly in Russians, isn't it? Now I'm scared once summer comes they won't get a long, and I won't be able to supervise once I put them in an outdoor...

    Are we looking healthy?

    Is my new adopted Russian looking ok? I've done a tiny beak trim, plan to do a tiny bit more then let it do the rest naturally. Been soaking every day, her face still feels pretty dry. I often find her drinking for long periods of time too. I only set her on the floor for photos, so that's why...

    Fostering Tortoises

    I've signed up to help a (kind of) local reptile rescue who gets quite a few tortoises as a foster! I am pretty excited to be able to help and give them a good home while I can. Quarantine period: How long is this typically? (if same breed I'd let them outside together) When bringing in a new...
