Its color is usually a mixture of tans and browns, occasionally with a green cast. The plastron is mostly black, and the skin color, including the entire head, is usually tan, dark gray or brown.

baby Russian tortoise for sale – Diet
Baby Russian tortoises, as well as full grown adult Russians, basically eat the same things. A high-quality tortoise diet, that includes a good sized variation of healthy greens and some veggies is recommended. Most importantly, do not feed the same thing daily. Above all focus on quality and variation. Here at CB, we feed a mixture of Romaine, Endive, various lettuces, Collard, Mustard, and beet greens. Also, we include shredded carrots, squash, an occasional tomato, and a few other healthy veggies. As a supplement for vitamin D and to make up for indoor tortoise setups that do not have the best UVB when compared to outdoors, feeding Mazuri tortoise food twice a week is best.
Russian tortoise supplements
Most important besides the food is the supplements you are adding to your Russians diet. We use a mixture of reptile multivitamin mixed 50:50 with Reptocal with Vitamin D3. We dust every other meal for our baby and Adult Russian tortoises.
