    Hello,
    This is Lucy, we just came across this site and wanted to say Hi.
    I hope the pictures come through. IMG_0785.jpg IMG_0786.jpg
    Picked her up at a local pet store a few weeks ago.
    The pictures are taken in the temporary tub she was in till her indoor enclosure was finished.
    I read that torts don't see red but I doubt that very much since she could obviously see the red dot from my thermometer so I got rid of the red heat lamp and now use a ceramic heat bulb.

    Hello and Welcome. Tortoises seem to be attracted to red, white, and a few other bright colors. Most other places outside of this forum has wrong and outdated info.
    Give your tortoise some humidity, like a warm humid hide and read our caresheet stickies under the Russian section.
