About Russian Tortuous

Adoption Fee: $50
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

We found this little guy last summer by a river. He had clearly been abandoned, as there was a pile of veggies about 20 feet from where we found him. I knew he couldn't possibly survive an Oregon winter, so we brought him home. I did my research, and got everything he needed to keep him healthy and happy to the best of my ability. It was easy during the summer months, because I was able to let him roam the backyard in the sun during the day. Now I am working full time, and he is stuck in his aquarium most of the time which breaks my heart. I personally do not agree with keeping these beautiful wild creatures as pets, but here he is. I just want to find him a wonderful KNOWLEDGEABLE home. He is the sweetest little guy, but I would NOT recommend him as a child's pet. They stay rather small in size, but do not like to be handled too much because it can stress them out. Also they are extremely active for a tortuous, and need either lots of space, or time out of their aquarium.. As well as bath/soak time to moisten their skin at lease once or twice per week. They are strictly vegetarian, and have a particular diet that consists of some variety to keep them healthy. He would come with his aquarium, heat lamp, etc if needed. PLEASE, serious inquires only. Thank you :)
