Russian Tortoise

Russian Tortoises can live up to 100 years!Russian Tortoises are very social with their pet parents and are considered to have a personality much like a dog.Although they are called Russian tortoises, they are found in more countries than just Russia. They range throughout a large part of Asia.Even though they have big, bulky shells Russian Tortoises love to climb and explore through all different terrain as long as it’s not too steep. They typically cannot climb over rocks larger than they are.Russian Tortoises do not grow large like many other tortoise species and only grow up to 8-10 inches.

The shell of a tortoise is made up of 60 different bones all connected together.

Turtles have good eyesight and an excellent sense of smell. Hearing and sense of touch are both good and even the shell contains nerve endings.

Tortoise have been on the earth for more than 200 million years. They evolved before mammals, birds, crocodiles, snakes, and even lizards.
