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.
Very happy with our recent purchase. The turtle is active, eating well and looks great.
3 inch red foot tortoise
Beautiful specimin. Arrived alert. Weight excellent. My only complaint is that the heat pack did not keep tortoise. But because of good health he does not seem affected.
The best experience I could have asked for.
My red footed tortoise arrived in perfect condition. He is a perfect addition to our family. Thank you Turtle Source.
Red foot tortoise
I bought a red foot tortoise three weeks ago. They told us the hatchling was three months old. That was NOT true when we received it it was at least a year old. The one eye never opened and it never would eat the pellets that were sent with him. The info page says not to keep water in the tank. We found out that’s NOT true. We were told he would love attention and would be active and ours seemed off from day one. Our tortoise didn’t even last 3 weeks. For the amount of money we paid that’s ridiculous and they only have a warranty for 7 days! I’m extremely disappointed and would NEVER recommend them!
Red Footed Tortoise
I'm incredibly impressed with the VIP customer service this company provides, including timely and even late night email responses. I adopted an 8 inch red footed tortoise and she arrived healthy and gorgeous. I almost fell prey to one of those "Turtle mills" - but luckily found this company instead. Great tortoise, great service- I'll be back for all my tortoise needs!

Arrived alive and healthy. Eager to see his new home. Beautiful colors. Thanks
Love my Red Foot Tortoises!!
I bought 2 red foot tortoises from the Turtle Source and I love them both so much. I purchased one about a month ago and loved his little personality, so I just had to buy another! This is my favorite place to buy tortoises. Before I found this awesome site, I bought a tortoise from a reptile mill website, I had no idea it was from a mill! After that terrible experience, I was so happy to find Turtle Source. They are so communicative and want you to be happy with your tortoises. My hatchlings are adorable and I can tell they were raised very well. I will only recommend this website in the future for anyone wanting a tortoise! Please use them. They have made my experience so easy. Also they don’t abandon you! I had a question about my tortoise’s diet and they gave me tons of suggestions on what I could feed him. My confidence in them made me want to purchase another tortoise with them and I definitely will be back in the future!!
Happy and healthy hatchlings. As always, communicative customer service and beautiful reptiles. Thanks!
