Vlad is a Russian Tortoise. Russian tortoises are a threatened species. They have an amazing tolerance for temperature extremes. Their defense mechanism is to burrow and hibernate through cold weather. They can live up to 100 years! Russian tortoises’ calm, docile disposition makes them a favorite at any event. These vegetarians are voracious eaters, preferring weeds to big leafy plants.
