I've been wanting a tortoise for a while, I think they are so cool! But I know that some reptiles are harder than others to take care of, especially in the hands of an inexperienced owner. So I decided to make a post on the forums here to get an opinion on which tort would be a good pet for someone new to tortoises.

I can provide indoor and outdoor play areas/living spaces, but I would prefer a tortoise that didn't get too big, I've seen some pretty massive tortoises lol!

I've been looking at a few different species online but I can't really tell which would be good for a first time tort owner. I liked the Russian Tortoises and Red Foot Tortoises. Would those make good first time pets?

Also, any tips/advice you could share with me would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
