Yellow Footed Tortoises (Four-Five Year Olds): Geochelone denticulata
Experience Level: Intermediate [?]
Care Sheet: Red-Footed / Yellow-Footed Tortoise
We have a nice group of four year old Yellow Footed Tortoises. These pretty tortoises have perfect shells and good yellow coloration. Each is has been hand raised to 4.5 - 5 inches. Well started Yellow Footed Tortoises this size are not often available. All have very small tails, so they are either all females - or are too young to tell their gender. Their description and care is standard for Yellow Footed Tortoises and follows:
Yellow-footed Tortoises inhabit the dense rainforests of South America and the Caribbean islands. Like Red footed tortoises, Yellow foots are very intelligent and quickly learn where food, shelter and good basking are found. Yellow-foots tend to be both more active and more secretive than Red-foots. Being more active, they can be a little more fragile than Red-foots, if not kept at fairly constant temperatures and humidity levels.
In nature, Yellow-foots' diet includes grasses, fruits, some insects and earth worms. Tortoise diet mixed with greens, veggies, fruits, and a calcium supplement suites them well. With a little patience, Yellow-foots can quickly learn to eat from your hand.
Yellow foots, thrive with other tortoise species. Shallow, warm water soaking every third day, a warm basking spot and plenty of food is the key for these very personable starter tortoises. Slightly moistened substrate works best for Yellow-foots. Natural sunlight in warmer months, or good UV basking bulbs indoors are important. They enjoy lots of humidity and even warm rains. Care must be taken to avoid cold temperatures when keeping Yellow-foots.
Yellow foots have been one of the most popular species for tortoise keepers for decades. Just follow their care sheets, and they are a pleasure to keep.
* 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. *
