    Russian Tortoise vs Greek Tortoise

    If anyone could get me answers, I would like to know if it is safe to put 2 tortoises together all the time? I would like to get another one but don't have much space to put a whole other tank. Thank you

    Russian Tortoise vs Greek Tortoise

    age of my russian tortoise?

    When people say that their tort is 5 or 6 inches, where is that measurement taken from? Is it from head to tail or is it side to side?

    age of my russian tortoise?

    Not sure if I can tell, but is there any way that I can tell how old my russian tortoise is? The pet store I got her from doesn't know anything about her past, so is there any way I can tell an age? Even if its a year or two off, I just want to know a range. Its driving me crazy! Any help would...

    What kind of temp. gauge to use?

    I have been told that the temp gauge I have is useless. Could anyone suggest a semi cheap but good quality temp reader?

    Outdoor enclosure

    I am thinking about an outdoor enclosure for my Russian Tort. I have the area, but the grass that it is on has probably been treated before. Can she be on the grass that has had chemicals on it before? Or should I do something else to make the grass as pure as possible? And pictures? Im not...

    Tort that has been sluggish

Just yesterday, my dad and i made her a platform thing. i dont have a picture of it at the moment. but it has a ramp with tooth picks glued to it for a grip so she can crawl up and down. The platform is about 8 inches tall. that way she...

    Tort that has been sluggish

    Right now I have a small temperature gauge in the middle of her tank that reads about 80 to 85. I got told last night that the temp gauge that I have is worthless. is a non contact infrared thermometer with laser targeting from a local freight harbor more accurate?

    Tort that has been sluggish

    Pablo. my RT has been very sluggish lately. As far as I know, she comes out and eats then goes to the corner of her tank and lays down all day, not asleep. Just sitting in one corner. I don't see her eat on the week days because I am at school, but her food dish is empty when I come home. I...
