  • The larger the enclosure the better!  
  • Custom cages should be around 4 feet wide by 4 feet long and 8-12 inches deep depending on the length of the tortoise
  • There should be two hide boxes available for Russian tortoises.  One should be positioned on the cooler side of the cage as well as the warmer side. 
  • Water dishes should be offered not only for drinking but for soaking.  Russian tortoises enjoy soaking themselves and relieving themselves in their water bowls.
  • Russian tortoises thrive when their enclosures are kept between 70° and 80° degrees Fahrenheit during the day with a basking site reaching 95 degrees.
  • Reptile carpet or indoor/outdoor carpet with timothy hay on top is a great substrate for the Russian tortoise.
