Russian Tortoise Age

I figure it's hard to determine the age of a Russian tortoise. Is there a site where I can find photos of Russian tortoises and their age?

Hmmm, I've tried this. Most sites don't include the tortoise's age. Thanks, though!

Does anyone know if the "rings" on the plastron plates correspond to the # of years, like a tree? My tortoise has an average of 17 rings on each little plate.

I don't know of one place to find photos related to age, but you might get the information you need by doing a google image search.

Go to

You will see a link to images. Click that.

Then just type in russian tortoise.

You will get many links to photos of Russian tortoises. Some of them will include the ages.
