    Hello, and thanks for the invite. I'm a new tortoise owner and have never had one before so may need some advice from all of you. Recently was given 2 Russian tortoise, 1 male 1 female and 3 Redfoot tortoise , 1 male 2 female. I am currently in the process of building outdoor enclosures for both. I will try to post pics later of the torts and the first enclosure later today to get some input and verify sex and type. All advice and help is appreciated.

    Thanks again
