Did you know that tortoises have been on the earth for more than 200 million years? That means the distant relative of that cute little shelled reptile you're considering adding to your family walked the earth at the very same time as dinosaurs! Along with their interesting history, tortoises have excellent eyesight and a keen sense of smell. They're fun to care for and fascinating to watch, making them popular pets for families and hobbyists alike.

Things to remember

Lifting & handling
Wait 3-4 days for your pet to adjust to his new surrounding. The try holding him for short amounts of time, and offering food by hand.

Environment
Russian tortoises need to live in a temperate, moderately humid environment; greek tortoises need to live in a warm, dry environment.

Exercise
Allow your tortoise to roam in the yard or house under close, constant supervision a few times a week.

Nutrition
Tortoises are herbivores and eat only plant matter; mostly vegetables and some fruits.

Calcium dust
"Dust" the food with calcium supplement twice a week - ask an associate for details.

Diurnal
Tortoises are active during the day and sleep at night.

Housing
Use a 40-gallon or larger, glass terrarium with a screen top for ventilation, or, use a waterproof container, at least 2' x 4', with 1.5'- 2' high sides. Be sure to provide a hiding place large enough for your tortoise to be completely concealed.

Greek Tortoise is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great alternative to furry critters Tortoises are very sweet. You wouldn't think of them as very clever, but they are. They learn faces and locations, and they warm up quickly to their owners and don't tend to bite unless you handle them roughly. They should always be handled gently. Mine even enjoys being scritched on the head and charges over happily when I walk by his enclosure to get him out. However, you should do your research as they DO need a water dish and they DO need good fiber-rich, low protein food on a regular basis, as well as room to roam and UVA/UVB lighting. Greeks live up to 100 years (yes, 1 followed by two 0s) so it's a bit of a commitment you could say! However, if you do choose to buy one, you will find yourself with a lifelong buddy who is a great pal - quiet, intelligent, and beautiful.
