"Peace Sign" Red Footed Tortoise: Geochelone carbonaria
Category: Rare & Exotic
Every few years we hatch a "One of a Kind" Red Footed Tortoise. In 2011 we hatched this very 1960s looking "Peace Sign" Red Footed Tortoise. Yes, it's shell has a perfect Peace Sign on the top. Now a year old, she (looks like she) is 3.25 inches long, particularly colorful and she gets along very well with other Red and Yellow Footed Tortoises. She is other wise a normal Red Footed Tortoise in every way and the care and description for normal red foots 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. *
