Growing up with animals, I have learnt so much about taking care of them. The most amazing thing about pets is the fact that they are so unconditional and so grateful for every small act of kindness. It is rather humbling to see how warm hearted animals can actually be. I would have never had the wonderful opportunity of dealing with tortoises and other animals, if it had not been for my family, especially my father. Animals were the centre of all our activities when I grew up. There was not a single day that did not begin with a discussion about our pets. What to feed them? What is the most nutritious thing to feed them? These were common dinner table conversations in our house. So, needless to say, I have had a lot of practical training and experience with respect to taking care of different breeds of animals. Today, I am in a very privileged place where I can share this information with pet lovers across the globe. I love Emily, my Russian Tortoise. In this book, I've explained my experience with my tortoise. I've included all these topics and more: pros and cons, keeping, daily care, costs, diet, breeding, cages, lightning, heating, interacting and where to buy. I explain all aspects of keeping a Russian Tortoise as a pet to make sure that your tortoise will be has happy as mine Mine is funny and makes me laugh, I hope yours will be funny too.
