Basic care requirements: need to be fed a variety of wild weeds, grasses, broadleaf weeds. They need a good variety calcium rich diet, I usually feed mine Monday through fri then I don’t feed them on the weekends. There enclosure needs to be 8x4 feet or larger per tort they can be housed outside or inside if they are inside they need T-5 uvb and I recommend a Mercury heat lamp for basking you can also use a cfl/ ceramic heat emitter to keep the inside of the enclosure the right temp , if you where to build a indoor enclosure and the lighting set up is not right they can develop metabolic bone disease. A water dish should be available at all times and I usually soak the tortoises once a week for 20 min to keep them hydrated. Russian tortoises do not require hibernation although if you want to you can, if you choose to you can do it in a mini fridge to keep the right temp but I do not know a lot about that way of doing it, I would not recommend doing it outside because it usually does not get cold enough. I also would not recommend keeping them together like I have, they are solitary animals and aggressive toward one another. You should also always do your own research to make sure your ready for a big responsibility. If you need any help with anything do not be afraid to ask on the following website https://www.tortoiseforum.org/threads/russian-tortoise-care-sheet.80698/ you can create an account and ask all types of questions, you can also ask me. I want to make sure that these torts are going to a good home because we rescued them and they have been in our family for a long time.


I am located in Sacramento California.

Pick up only as i am not willing to ship them in a box.
