I have read that adult female russian torts can breed at 6 inches or larger, with adult males being around 5 to 6 inches in size. I also read where it is recommended that adult female redfoots need to be around 10 inches plus to breed. How big do russian males and females need to be to successfully breed, and how do you measure them? Do you measure along the bottom of the carapace? Do you measure from the top straight line? Case in point, I recently measured my female redfoot tort. She is only six inches along the bottom of her carapace end to end. However, I am pretty sure she would be about 8 or so inches if I measured her straight line from the top.

Thanks
KevinM
