Hello everyone. We just purchased our first tortoise. We have a female named Shelly. We bought her as a gift four our 7 yr old turtle/tortoise loving daughter. This is her pet but as parents we want to make sure that we are very educated and help her be the best pet owner she can be.

Thanks for the welcome! I haven't taken a ton of pics but will post a few that we have. Since getting her this evening we just put her in her enclosure and watched her a bit. It was neat to watch her soak herself, check out her hide hole and just check things out. Good to see her active!

Welcome to the Forum. Shelly is a very nice looking tortoise. I love Russian Tortoises.
