Someone found this wondering around for a few days. It was outside her house and way too cold. I can't keep it, I didn't want it to die. Please help

If you can find a way to get it up to me, I can provide a home for the tort.

Jamie

PS - I bet you can find a better, closer home, but I love my Russian, so I had to offer.

Breathe, Ink. You've done something really lovely.

Keeping him in a plastic storage bin in a warm room will be fine until things come together. Russians can climb, so use a deep-sided bin. Bit of towel or newspaper on the bottom is fine. If you can't heat him, don't worry about food; his weight looks OK (which makes me wonder if he's gone missing from home just recently).

I'm in southern NJ, but not supposed to travel. Jamie is a great option!

She is going to Jamie, first one to reply. It is 50 and raining, outside that is why I told the lady to bring her to me because it had no shelter and outside. She posted ,(that is how I found her)and asked neighbors about the tortoise, to my knowledge. It has been between her neighbors and her her house for days, and wouldn't go away.

So glad you were able to take it in and that you can get it to Jamie. If anything doesn't work out, just let me know.

He/she looks pretty healthy for living outside the time being.
I wonder if the tort got lose from it’s outdoor enclosure or having the chance to exercise outdoors and play in the grass.
the bottom of his shell looks a bit concerning, but that might be normal for his/her age or no concern at all.

what area are you from that you found this beautiful creature just roaming around outside?

Man! I knew I should have logged on earlier! Been working on new enclosures or I might have been lucky enough to reply first🤣. Glad you found a good home for her.
