Owner of two Russian tortoise brothers, Dimitri and Bruslovski
Incubating two of my female Russian's eggs in a rare winter clutch!
Hi! I’m new to the tortoise forum. I have a Russian tortoise named Gobo (got the name from a book). I’ve had him for a few years, and so far he’s been pretty healthy, but still; I need help!

Hello! Tom the dog trainer on the forum said maybe you can identify this tortoise? Is it a hingeback, local to W. Africa? I was afraid it was an endangered elongated, which is not native here. A vendor wanted to sell it to me, but I am leaving the country soon and I know I can't bring it back to the US. unknown tortoise
