    hello looking to buy a baby Russian tortoise and while I know I need a large enclosure of 6’ by 4’ feet or larger what size is recommended for a baby Russian. I saw a kamp Kenan video about Russian tortoise care and tortoisesupply.com and in that video they kept what seemed like 10 tortoises in a plastic tub. I am looking to buy a tub that would fit one baby Russian but can’t seem to find anything good.

    I buy all the tubs for my babies at Home Depot. The Husky brand, 54-gallon is my favorite. I cut the lid so half of it can be opened, while the other part stays fixed with a round hold cut for the basking light. Helps to hold heat and humidity in.

    Welcome to the forum. Go to our Russian tort forum section. We have care sheets posted at the top. Great info. They will give you all the information you need. Kamp Kenan is not a good source to get your info from. We have all the up to date info to help you raise your baby the right way. Good luck
