Hi! My name is Anastasia.
I was brought into the shelter as a stray and then transferred to rescue to help me heal and find my forever home. My shell started to peel because I didn't have the right things that I needed, such as UVB, heat, diet, and supplements. As time goes on, with these things corrected, my shell will improve.
So a little bit about me, I'm a vegetarian and I love the outdoors. Having a safe indoor enclosure is an option but if you are willing to build an appropriate and safe enclosure outside, I will thrive there too! The rescue has all the information you will need to set either one up for me.
I can live more than 50 years if I have a lean, high-fiber diet and a low-stress environment with the right temps and light. Bringing me into your family is a lifelong commitment, for both of us!
I’m bashful, shy, introverted, timid, and coy but I like to chill with my people sometimes as well. You can learn more about my needs here > https://www.lllreptile.com/articles/51-russian-tortoise/
If you think we may be a good match, or you would like to get to know me better, please click the Adoption Application button below and you will be contacted to set up a date!
