Hi There found this little guy wondering down our street. I think its a Russian? I posted in our local AP to see if the owners will claim him but until then I will house him. I have a box tor now. My question is do you think this little guy can be out side with my box? i'm pretty sure i need to have them separated but is he to small for out side? and is he a Russian? thanks

Yep he’s a Russian. Another in a long list of escapees!

He can be outside as long as it’s sunny and at least 70 degrees. Provide shade. Definitely keep him separate from your boxie. Feed him weeds and greens. No fruit. I’m sure he needs a nice long soak. There’s a great Russian caresheet here. Look under species tab for Russian.
Glad you found him.
