Hi, I’m looking to purchase a Russian tortoise & would like to find a reputable breeder to purchase from instead of purchasing from a petco or pet smart. Thanks

In addition to all of the above good references, ask questions. Find out if the tort got soaks after he was born. There's a great paper/thread on this site on failing to keep hatchlings in the beginning hydrated causing organ failure, stunted growth & other problems.

Read the care sheets on Russians on this site before you buy one so you're prepared in advance. Run your set-up past the experts on this site. Preparedness is crucial to your tort's health.

Oh, and welcome to the forum!!
