A new Russian Tortoise has joined our creep... Wilhelmina lived the last ten years not far from us, on the other side of Keene. They called her William.
She'd been living in a 10g aquarium, with occasional escapes to wander their house, which is how she got bitten by their German Shepherd.
She's 15cm and 682g, and seems to have enjoyed a long soak and scrub and some fresh food (her old family fed her Zoo-med kibble only), including a hibiscus flower.
Her new indoor enclosure is many times bigger than her old one, and tomorrow I'm going to get her into a big outside enclosure.
Once she's gone through her quarantine, I'm hopeful about her addition to my fledgling breeding group of Russian Tortoises.
