My Russian tortoise loves to be held and keeps her head out when anyone holds her. She also loves to snuggle up to me and sleep. Maybe she is usual but I talked to her a lot when I first got her. She has been a wonderful friendly pet who loves attention IMG 0397

I don't really talk to my little Russian but he still knows me. He's always friendly to other people too. I think they just like people. He seems to favor me but when other people pet his shell, he tries to lift himself up into their hand. I think that's an ulterior motive though because he wants to go outside and play ? The only time I've seen him become a sycho tort is around another tort...

The more you put in the more you get out. Most ppl don’t believe how my RT behaves. Amazing especially for a reptile.
