I am 12 years old and I recently got a Russian tortoise named Ivanka. I have a food bowl for her that I put food in but she loves to sit in it, so I always have to lift her out. I also carry her outside to walk around and to the tub to soak in. Sometimes I also hold her and rub her neck, because I think she likes it. But I don’t really know how to hold her. I’ve heard you’re supposed to keep all four of their legs on your hand, but my hand is too small (or Ivanka is too big) to fit in my hand like that. I also tried to put my her under my hand with her legs dangling, but she will kick and start to push herself off of my hand, and I’m afraid she will fall that way. Do you have any ideas on how I should hold her?
