    And I know I don't need to tell you @ Anniem805 the, "tortoises are delightful chew-toys for dogs" warning, right?

    Right. Both my dogs go to sniff Turtle, then ignore him. Turtle has A loud hiss he uses if necessary; scares the dogs. And they are not outside alone.

    I have two male Russian tortoises. One named Snapper, the other Shelldon. We've had snapper for about five years, and Sheldon about one month. ImageUploadedByTortoise Forum1498138214.290716.jpg

    Hey!

    I'm new to the forum and to having a tortoise. I got my first horsfield tortoise in November 2016.

    He is beautiful.

    His names Bowser and is 19 months old.

    My two redfoot juvenile torts debating what's for dinner...

    They spend hours flipping back and forth, leaving me with not enough time for the actual cooking. They always end up with raw veggies and fruits, poor things.

    Cheers,

    Cute little thing! My tort refuses to eat calcium blocks, but he demolishes cuttle bone within a day or two.
