Chocolate Colored Red Footed Tortoise: Geochelone carbonaria
Category: Rare & Exotic
Experience Level: Starter [?]
Care Sheet: Red-Footed / Yellow-Footed Tortoise
A one of a kind Red Footed Tortoise produced by our colony of high colored adults. The shell is a chocolate color brown color with orange/yellow highlights. It's growth lines are coming in in the same brown color that it hatched with. It's skin is a dark gray to black color and is much darker than normal. This unusual tortoise looks like a combination of a Black, and a Honey colored red foot. Still another interesting color resulting from breeding high color Red Foots together generation after generation. It's behavior and care are the same as that 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.
* Remember, each Tortoise order comes with a free starter sample of the same Tortoise diet your Tortoise has been raised on - to order larger quantities, see the lower left side of this page. *
