The temperature in their box is always 20-30 never gets lower than that. I feed them different kinds of leaves, salad leaves (rocket salad) and like to try them with different things, but would like to know where I can buy proper food for them. They're not old enough to eat their pallets yet but they do like the salad leaves and eat all the time when I give them food, that are always active and have loads of room to walk about there box is massive for them they're housed together and I don't know the sex as they're only a year old. Still babies. Also they have a bath every 2 days
You can try feeding them kale, collards, romaine lettuce, and escarole. They all should be available in the local grocery store. If it's too cold over there for any type of weeds yet, like it is where I live, then salad (I recommend the spring mix) is fine.
If they're housed together I would watch carefully for any kind of aggression or bullying. Russians are very territorial animals.
Other than that, cute torts they look healthy to me
Your little Russian babies look great. If you'd like to read a good care sheet so you can double check how you care for them, and see what to feed them, we have a good care sheet pinned at the top of our Russian section here on the forum!
Hi Charlotte! I had a baby Russian tortoise for Christmas and your torts shell looks perfect! Try giving her some raw broccoli too my tortoise loves that and also raw carrots. Also sprinkle calcium onto the food which will help the shell to grow and make sure she has plenty of heat and light - this will stop the shell developing any deformed areas.
Thank you really appreciate your messages they seem fairly happy and get on really well, had them 9 months now and they sleep together, eat together and everything and are also becoming quite tame I was just unsure of things to feed them, thanks again
