Which cage?

Would my russian tortoise do better in a large wooden "cage" or a large glass aquarium?

Tortoises do not do well in glass enclosures. They will keep trying to get out.

A Russian Tortoise will actually do better outside. But if you do need to have an indoor enclosure, make it as big as you can. Also be sure the sides are very high. Russian Tortoises can climb.

Remember to include a basking lamp and a UVB lamp.

Keep it slow and steady.
