    The Resemblance is Uncanny

    I had a pattern for a turtle so I decided to alter it slightly and make a little cross stitch Russian. It's like Richard's looking into a mirror. lol

    Sexing my Russian tortoise

    When I got my Russian, Richard, the previous owner said they male. Since then I've been told by one vet that they thought they might be male but wasn't sure and by another vet that they were female. Based on posts I've seen about sexing tortoises I think they might be male, especially since...

    Queen of the Mountain

    Every time I put food in Richard's dish the little weirdo immediately climbs on top of it. It's my actual favorite thing.

    My vet suggested mealworms?

    I posted a review on their facebook page but I suppose I could post on yelp too. The first vet has her specialty listed on the clinic's website as avian and exotics and she's who my appointment was set up with when I asked if they could see my tortoise (I didn't request anyone specific), but it...

    My vet suggested mealworms?

    Here's a photo of his plastron as well. No hinge like a box turtle would have.

    My vet suggested mealworms?

    Thank you! I'll moisten what he has now. He usually won't eat them at all, so over his usual greens might get him to.

    My vet suggested mealworms?

    Here's a picture of Richard. (there's a few more in the album on my profile if you want to see more) If he's actually a box turtle then he is very cleverly disguised.

    My vet suggested mealworms?

    Richard went to the vet today and when the vet was talking about diet she suggested added mealworms or crickets to his diet. In everything I've looked at regarding Russian tortoise diet I've never seen anyone say they should be eating either of those. Does anyone here give their Russian live...
