    if you have groups of two or more...

    I have 1 dish per 2 tortoises. I monitor them for 30 minutes, and i do it like this. 15 minutes per tortoise....this way i know they're eating the right amount. My tortoises rarely eat a full dish between them.

    Yea, i agree. People in the old days use to oil and wax their tortoises. You shouldn't really be putting anything but clean warm WATER on their shells

    Is it important to bring your Tortoise to the Vet? Or only if they are sick?

    yes, a regular check up is best. tortoises dont show emotion very much so they could be in pain, or sick and you wouldnt notice

    Can you over feed russians?

    You can over feed ANY tortoise. Which would eventually cause Pyramiding, and if not taken into control it cna ruin a tortoises shell and body. You should only feed as much as they can eat within 20 mins.

    Tortoise little zoo....

    Nice! but they shouldn't really be together, not even for feeding times or outdoors in the open air. Things can be passed on to the different species making them extremely sick or worse.
