Me too ;) They are absolute hams. I was sitting on the ground inside the enclosure yesterday morning and ended up with a lap full of torts, lol!

Thanks ;) She may well have been, she is a bit of a princess ;) She likes it when I hand feed her.

I basically feed what ever I have in my kitchen. I don't follow a set schedule as far as greens or veggies. The majority of what they (my Russians, anyway) eat is dark leafy greens and weeds, but the only thing I do not feed them is fruit. You can read more about my feeding philosophy here -

That kind of makes me want to have a pile of tortoises.

Piles of torts are awesome ;) I have several groups, but the Russians are my favorite "pile." ;)

You are very welcome. I think too many people want to make it all too complicated. This method has worked well for me for many, many years and certainly makes life easier!
