I live with five Russians, and they're great torts. An adult male will still be pretty small, is hardy and outgoing and can live happily in an open table type enclosure and they're gorgeous!

Russian and western hermanns or any type of hermanns are great starters. Dalmation, eastern, western and also any greek tortoises.

Thank You

We originally wanted Hermann more than anything but could not deal well with the hibernating process.
Thank You.
My daughter and I are sadly getting discouraged it just seems as if we can never learn the skills to
Properly keep a Tortoise Healthy:(
Your research is really important because it prepares you to avoid pitfalls that beginners make when they're unprepared and misinformed. So good on you & your daughter. Do not get discouraged just because it seems complicated. We are here to help & answer questions. Have you decided on a hatchling (new born), well-established baby, juvenile or adult?

Like previous postings said, we have a number of breeders who are members. We also have a vendor review thread of many online reptile sites so you don't walk into a purchase without your eyes open.

So welcome to the forum.
