    I have read them before! But thanks for the info. I'm actually trying to weed out what are reliable places to purchase a small tortoise

    I'm not set on the russian tortoise, I have also dome a fair share of research on the Hermann tortoise. Both have similar size and care needs. However it is hard to find a Russian that is captive bred so I have been meaning towards the hermann

    Here are three russian breeders that I have direct experience with and recommend highly:
    @Carol S
    @kanalomele
    @biochemnerd808

    There are more on this forum that start babies right, but I don't have first hand experience with them and don't know all the details of their initial hatchling care. Ask them.

    I am currently out of hatchlings, but will have some very soon as they should hatch in the coming days. And they are all captive bred.

    Both. I sell hatchlings I breed and I am looking for adults to make another breeding colony.
