Dumpling the Russian tortoise




Dumpling is a delicious and delightful young Russian Tortoise who came to CLEAR when his owner couldn’t care for him any more. He loves his greens, exploring his all natural bioactive enclosure, and gnawing on the occasional plant. Dumpling loves the occasional supervised outdoor walk and interacting with the elderly residents at the nursing home where he is being fostered. Belonging to a Russian Tortoise is a multidecadal commitment, and we’ve done everything to make sure his forever home will be in good shape for that commitment.
