Russian Tortoise for sale Availability
Most adult, wild caught, cheaply priced Russian tortoises are imported into the United States. There are also captive bred babies available from Russian tortoise breeders, like us. Compared to the number of imported tortoises, captive production of this species is relatively low. You should assume that most adult or subadult Russian tortoises for sale are wild-caught (imported). Captive-bred babies are rarely raised to adult size and sold at the low prices that these imported Russian tortoises sell for.
A popular pet tortoise, Russian tortoises are one of the most readily available tortoise species. They are small, making them easy for most people with limited space to keep. They are also feisty, eager to eat and more active than some other tortoises. When allowed to burrow, Russian tortoises also have one of the highest tolerances for temperature extremes. They are one of the few species that can be kept outdoors in most of the United States, year-round. These factors make Russian tortoises attractive for new tortoise keepers and a fun tortoise for seasoned veterans.
