… there lived a little tortoise.

When the Father was explaining to them [some Huron seminarists] some circumstance of the passion of our Lord, and speaking to them of the eclipse of the Sun, and of the trembling of the earth which was felt at that time, they replied that there was talk in their own country of a great earthquake which had happened in former times; but they did not know either the time or the cause of that disturbance. "There is still talk," (said they) "of a very remarkable darkening of the Sun, which was supposed to have happened because the great turtle which upholds the earth, in changing its position or place, brought its shell before the Sun, and thus deprived the world of sight."' [7] In modern media [ edit ] It’s true that tortoises need a lot of room relative to the size of their bodies, but keeping one is well worth the effort. The regress argument in epistemology and the infinite regress in philosophy often use the expression " turtles all the way down" to indicate an explanatory failure based on an explanation that needs a potentially infinite series of additional explanations to support it. [ citation needed] See also [ edit ] Tortoises may be slow and sedentary in captivity, but in the outdoors they are active and curious. They take great pleasure in exploring new territories and vigilantly guarding familiar ones. Remember that proper maintenance is vital to keeping them healthy. Clean the enclosure and monitor temp and humidity levels.

Russian tortoises can live well in most environments. They can thrive in even the most extreme conditions. So they can be kept either indoors or outdoors or both.

Housing both males and females together is a bad idea as males can be quite aggressive towards females.

The attractive Hermann’s tortoise is a small Mediterranean tortoise. It has yellow and brown carapace and short strong legs. This small tortoise loves to run, dig, and move around. The species of tortoise matters for the size of the enclosure. Different species have different space needs, based on their natural habitats and activity levels.Russian tortoises are also very tolerant of extreme temperature differences as such they can be housed outdoors in many places around the world. The tolerant, active, and feisty nature of Russian tortoises make them great tortoises for beginners and veterans alike. Most Russian tortoises found in the United States are wild-caught and imported into the country.
