  1. i got Milo a male Russian tortoise from pet smart and every day I can't stop wondering the age I looked it up they all said "well don't buy stuff if you don't know about it" and believe me I'm one of those people who read like 500 books before I buy a pet lol anyways he is 3 inches from head to tail/butt the pet shop said like 2 another forum said 10 which I think is not true so what do you guys think he's 3 inches head to tail:):D

    There is no way to tell how old the tortoise is based on its size. Size is determined by outside factors like diet and lighting. Since you don't know the age at the time of purchase, you will never know its actual age. Anyone giving you an actual number is guessing.
