I’m in Holland Michigan. I rescued a male Russian Tortoise and would like to rehome home him to someone with experience.
He was living for 10 years in a 36” glass aquarium. I’ve had him for 3 weeks. He eats well and has been to the vet to get his beak trimmed.
Thanks for considering,
Does anyone know of the Turtle Tortoise Rescue of Arroyo Grande? Would this be a good option for my male Russian tortoise?
Apparently they have an out door area set up for Russians and have a few running around.
Any insight would be appreciated!
His name is Tuck (I think). Sounds like your guy is pretty lucky. A conservatory!
Trial and error is a good way to think about this. Right now though, I go in often and sit with him. My fingers are crossed that I’ll be able to have two indoor enclosures and he’ll be content part of the day...
Thank you so much for taking the time to share. Very touching about your Zola and the bond you have with him. Love hearing that he is “precious” to you. Also the elderly woman you met, that’s incredible.
Just curious, with the recommended huge enclosures, are you able to keep Zola in a part...
I appreciate all the input. Thank you!
Another question, Do your tortoises interact in anyway with you? Is there an attachment you begin to feel with your tortoise? Is it mutual?
Part of my anxiety (I think) has to do with this. The complex care with a creature that will never connect...
I have my first Russian tort. I rescued from a bad situation. When I realized I wasn’t nesceassrily qualified either ( although much better) I decided I was going to rehome to someone who could provide indoor/ out door enclossures. I thought their would be several eager hands raised to adopt...
I live in Holland Michigan and rescued a Russian tortoise. He has an over grown beak and has been in a glass aquarium (approximately 36 inches). For 10 years.
I picked him up yeasterday and am in the process of putting him in 2 zoo med tortoise enclosures.
I know this still isn’t ideal...
