i found a russian tortoise
(modesto ca. usa)
we just bought a house and we started fixing our backyard. we started to dig and we found a russain tortoise. :D i wanted to know how long can it be out of the dirt? we went and bought a smaller plastic kids pool from walmart and we havn't filled it up with dirt yet. its been more then a few hrs but we been keeping it in the shade. will it b ok and can we use any dirt?
