    Male or Female?

    Hello, I was wondering if someone could tell from this pic if this is a Russian or Greek Tort and the aporoximate age? I visited a place today with several different species and now I'm unsure. Thanks!

    Help, sick tortoise!

    So, so sorry for your loss. I have tears in my eyes reading all the kind, thoughtful replies. I lost my older RT Oscar Clyde nearly one week ago. I understand your sadness.

    Totally new turtle owner in Texas.

    Yvonne is right on the money! Keeping two together is a bad idea! I'm glad you have space to separate them:) Best of luck to you and your new babies!

    No grocery store?

    I buy my torts food from the grocery store. I do my best to buy organic greens and no fruit! I bought organic clover sprouts for her yesterday and she loves them! I agree, variety is key!

    Hello Tortoise Forums!

    I chose an RT because I live in New England. I also like Leopards! I'm fairly new here. I had two torts but one passed recently now I only have the young one female.

    Hi, happy to report both torts are doing well. Eating great and having a ball! Just want to thank everyone for all the feeding suggestions and advice. I'm fairly new to this but learning more each day. Glad to have this tortoise forum.

    Thank you TD! I've been trying new foods just so he'll eat something. He's very picky and I worry about him.

    Hi everyone, So, after reading several of these threads I decided to try butternut squash and green pepper for my older tort Oscar. Success! So happy to see him eat. Thank you for all the suggestions. Glad to have this forum to chat with other tort keepers!
