Hi Nicoli, and welcome to the Forum!

Where you're located might have some bearing on what kind of tortoise would be suitable for you.

So, I'm confused. The title of this thread says you are going to be getting a tortoise but you can't decide what kind to get. Do you already have a Russian tortoise and you want to get another species of tortoise?

So you already know that whatever you get next can't live with your russian tortoise ....

Hello and welcome Nicole. You came to the right place everyone here is very nice and helpful. I do recommend two or three books for you.
Popular Tortoises by: Philippe de Vosjoli .
Keeping And Breeding Tortoises In Captivity by: Andy Highfield
Turtles of the World by: Carl Ernest and Roger Barbour
Encyclopedia of turtles by: Dr. Peter Pritchard
you might be able to find them on E-bay or Amazon
I got these books years ago and I still use them to refer back to.

Aw - that's too bad. Do you know why he died? I'm so sorry.

I know, but I was being lenient because the OP is only 16.
