Hello everyone. My name is Kristen, and my son's Russian tortoises name is Lima Bean. We will have her going on 3 years this August. We got her/him from pet smart. My son, had done his research, and new more about the diet needs, and habitat, then the associate. We were told she/he was approximately 8 months old at time of purchase. They could not tell us the sex. I am so glad we found this group yo help is give lima bean the best life possible.

Your tortoise looks good to me, a non-expert. Don't know if you can tell the sex at this age. Others here will help with any other questions you may have.

They don't sell 8 month old tortoises at Petsmart. You have a wild caught tortoise and it was several years old at least when you bought it.

Your tortoise appears to be female.

Most of the info found online and in pet stores is all wrong. Then the pet stores sell you all the wrong equipment and enclosures. Here is the correct care info:
