What does it mean when my female Russian Tortoise bobs her head at the male Russian Tortoise?

No matter why she bites, if the biting annoys the male, separate them, or at least give him a good hidey hole she can't get at him in. No one deserves to live with someone who makes his life a misery.

head bob

tortises use the headbob as a sort of hello. Diffrent species have unique head movements.This is how they identify themself to others.
