    Indoor Russian Tortoise Enclosure

    The Russians really like to roam around and climb over things, think about it this way. an adult is going to be at least 6 inches so it's body alone is going to take up 1/4 of the width L, more if it gets larger than 6 inches. Thats really not leaving much room to move about and explore after...

    Indoor Russian Tortoise Enclosure

    Is it indoors full time or do you have an outdoor enclosure too? If this is it's main home then I would say yes go larger, always make them as large as you can. If this is only used for times it can't be outside then it would be ok.

    Is this shedding??..

    Do females bite eachother?

    That's a very good video, I think when most people read about "bullying" they think it is much more physical and don't realize how serious something this subtle is.

    growth rate

    OK so I've had Booyah for a little over one year now, When I bought her from the local pet store they told me she was about 6 years old so I figured she was about full size. I have no idea what a normal growth rate is but I thought it interesting how much she has grown and how fast she is...

    Refusing to show breeding facility?

    We have had a bad experience with people that came over claiming they wanted to buy rabbits. They where PETA and a problem with animals in cages and pens, tried to cause problems for us and harass us. Also there are concerns with what people are tracking into the farm, even the vets need to take...
