Desert or Russian Tortoise?
(Long Beach, CA)
I live in Southern California and found a small tortoise walking down the middle of the street. I assumed it was a Desert Tortoise, but when I went to the pet store to buy a heat lamp and food, they had a Russian Tortoise for sale and I do not know what mine is. Can you explain the difference so that I can provide the proper care for whatever species it is? Looking forward to hearing from you.
