My daughters science teacher sent me the below email, I don't have room for them but I do want to help find them a good home. I will post a pic when she emails it to me, were located in Oklahoma.

send me a pm if interested, I will want to know and see pictures of where they will be housed.


Near the end of the school year, I received a pair of Russian tortoises

I have 1 Russian tortoise. Where are you located? Pics?

I've posted some pictures in another thread, I have a few people I'm talking with, I want no money for them, just shipping cost if it comes to that. They are very health and smooth torts. I just want them to go to a good home, I know a few people want them to sell them, I'm totally against that.

I have just acquired some new items to turn into tables. They will require some work to get them tortoise ready but that is the goal. When you get ready to find homes, I might be ready. I do not have the outdoor enclosure finished yet either. I put a cage on the grass right now where the grass goes through the wires for outdoor time daily.

I am interested in getting one of the tortoises! Are they still available?
I'm talking with a few people, I want to see their set ups. I think a few people want them so they can sell them. It's impossible for me to know for sure that's what's going on but if I feel like that's what is happening, they will be last on the list. I will not pay for any shipping.
