Hello, I’m 16 and my brother recently gave me his Russian Tortoise. I’m no expert on the situation, but I want to help him the best I can. My brother would mostly feed him ice burg lettuce and he has a generally small cage. He isn’t active and just burrows all day. Any advice on what I should do??

Read this at least twice all the way through. Everything is explained in detail. If you have questions after that, please feel free to ask.
