Adding a second Russian Tortoise

22 16:46:41

I have had a Russian tortoise for about 3 years and would like to add a second one.  What things should I be aware of?  I intend to keep them together in the same terrarium if possible.

Hello, Yes its possible even babies can lvie with adults I beliave, I just reccomend housing them seperetly for a few months and having the new tortise vet checked and a fecal test done and dewormed to be sure he is healthy and parrisite free before palcing him with your current one.
