Post Posted: Mon Aug 11, 2008 7:42 pm   **UPDATE ON TJ THE RUSSIAN TORTOISE**

He is doing better, being more active eating a lot of veggies, the whole not eating well issue is over. I love his cute little tongue(He sticks it out while eating and licks his lips afterward) so cute!! I will provide pics probably tomorrow. Anyone else with a Russian tort on this forum? Id like to discuss your eating habits, you're habitat, ect.

My tort's Habitat is:
40 Gal Reptile tank, (I put cardboard around the glass to prevent stress of wanting to get out) Dirt i bought compressed into bricks from Petco, i decompressed 3 bricks(around 4-5 inches deep), hay, all over, peat moss, Half log sleeping area food bowl (which i don't use) Water bowl, humidity 70%, Temp on hot side 90, temp on cool side 65-70.

OHHH geez
SOOOO cute!!!

I dunno If I will get a baby or what though. I wouldn't mind an older one, cause I would really like a male and I'd really like to rescue one, but I never ever see anything posted in my area for anything except RES.
