Tortoises are cheap and easy to find where you are.
The best habitats are huge plastic bins or wooden enclosures, you cant keep them in glass, they will bash into it till the death (they can't see it, it's not there).
Also, research their UVA and UVB requirements as well, that's the most important part of the set up.
Some species to look into: greek tortoise and Russian tortoise, they stay small and therefore don't need huge homes like something like a red footed tortoise.
Tortoises are VERY smart, and have great personalities. I wish they were easier to find in Canada.
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
