We recently adopted a new Testudo. I feel like I have hundreds of questions, so I'm glad we found this forum. To be honest, we aren't even certain which kind he is.

Hello everyone from Texas.

Hi, and welcome! It's a little Russian tortoise, Testudo horsefieldii. Here's our care sheet:


If you want to go back to it again and again, it's pinned towards the top of our Russian tortoise section.

Thanks! Russian is what I thought, but my wife thought it was Greek. I will go check that out right now. Just by looking at this forum for most of the morning, it looks like I've done a number of things right, but unfortunately a number of things wrong. But we've only had him for a few weeks and the temperature and hide and humidity and UV and day light hours all seem correct, so I think we can recover!
