Blonde Red Footed Tortoises: Geochelone carbonaria
Category: Rare & Exotic
Experience Level: Starter [?]
Care Sheet: Red-Footed / Yellow-Footed Tortoise
Blonde Red Footed Tortoises are the result of two generations of breeding for light color - and some good luck... We get only a few of these each year to offer. They have very faded, light yellow shells.Some have bright red scales and some have faded yellow scales. Their care and description is the same as for normal colored Red Footed Tortoises and Follows:
Red-footed Tortoises are the inhabitants of the exotic Jungles of the Caribbean, central and south America. They are quite intelligent, they have good memory and learn rapidly where and when food is available; and where shelter and basking is to be found. They have a strong sense of smell, and their sense of touch includes even the slightest contact with their shell.
Grasses, clover hay, dark, leafy greens, (except for spinach) cactus, carrots and mixed vegetables are all good for Red-footed Tortoises. Sweet, red fruits are their favorites. Supplements that are high in calcium and low in phosphorus, are best for this hearty species.
Red-footed Tortoises do very well in community settings. With a little extra care, hatchlings thrive with other tortoises. Shallow, warm water soaking every third day, a warm basking spot and plenty of food is the key for these pretty starter tortoises.
Red-footed Tortoises are one of the most popular species kept the world over - and once you begin working with them, it's easy to see why.
