:I've had my russian tort for almost three years and I'm wondering if I should get him a companion. If so, should I get another russian or will any other similarly-sized tortoise do? Would male or female be better, and if it was a female russian, would it be possible to keep them from mating? I'm away at school for much of the year and he does get looked after at home, but I wonder if he'd be happier with someone else to keep him company. I'm not sure yet if getting another tort is feasible right now but any answers would still be much appreciated! thanks


Although tortoises can seem to have personalities, they do not have a high enough brain function to need companionship, other than to procreate. If you want another tortoise and can take proper care of it, by all means get one. But your's will do very well without ever seeing another toroise.IMHO
