We got a tortoise in my biology class:)
I’m pretty sure I was the only person that was genuinely excited about this, the only person that held it, and the only one that came in at lunch to see it again. I’m already in love with the thing ahaha. It would be wonderful if I could convince my teacher to let me take it at the end of the year. If any of those fuckers at school harm my tortoise, I will cut a bitch.
Thats right! you tell em! Clearly you’ve already been owned by that tortoise (thats an honor you know) I’m sure if you made sure it was getting the proper care and brought in some research for the class you’d be sure to get a chance at keeping that beautiful shell after the year is over.
looks like a russian tortoise to me! Check out http://russiantortoise.net/ it has everything you need to know to get started caring for that one! No tank! lots of soaks, and some quality greens.
Its got some really good ideas for low cost healthy housing for indoor russian tortoises. A nice bin and a powersun bulb will get ya started.
