Here’s the outdoor enclosure so far! It’s 8x8 feet with 1 foot high walls. I still need to cap the corners and add more hides and stuff. I planted it with the broadleaf testudo seed mix from tortoise supply, so hopefully that grows in well :)
I’m probably gonna throw in a hibiscus Bush, some cactus, and maybe a mulberry tree.

I've had a russian tort for almost 6 years and I can't take it anymore. He NEVER stops scratching. I guess it's because his cage is too small, based on other posts. And I know I can't try and adopt him out on here before I post 100 times. But I don't know what to do with him. He does not bring me joy; all he does is get on my nerves. I want him to have a good life, and I feel like he's not getting that from me since I'm upset at him for scratching all the time. Please help.

Where are you located??
I would find a Humane Society or a Reptile Rescuse who takes in these guys! Russians just do that and they need space.. lots of it! No matter how big the space is these dudes never stop lol I would say the RT needs a better place! If you were near me I'd take it!! I hope you find somewhere to go to give this lil guy a better chance!

Here’s the little guy’s thread! I’ll be tracking his progress there when he arrives :)

I am very happy you turned to the experts on the forum to get him a great home.. Technocheese will hopefully post a lot of pictures so you and the rest of us, will be able to know he is doing great.
