  • Your tortoise looks like mine. I thought ours was a Golden Greek, but now I'm thinking she's a Russian. When I put her outside in her run, she heads right for the shade. By 3:00 she is buried - sometimes deeply. I've been afraid to leave her outside at night because it gets below 50 degrees. But if she's a Russian, I think that is ok?

    NOPE They begin hibernation at 55 degrees. When it gets into low 60's, I bring Digger inside. He only stays out over night in the summer. He also runs for the shade in the heat of the sun. Digger is most active after 3 pm when it starts to cool. I generally feed him outside between 5 and 6 every day. They have a tremendous appetite when they are warm.
