Product Description

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.

    I ordered 2 of this little darlins. They arrived on schedule in perfect condition. I let them out in their prepared new home and they immediately found food and water then explored until they found the perfect place to snooze. Love them already! Thank you Turtle Source ❤️

    Thanks to being notified by text and email, I knew just where and when to go pick up my little guy. Our temperature was so hot here in Texas, that it was safer for me to pick him up at the ups service center. he was and still is in very happy condition and loves his new home!

    Posted by Johnathan on May 24th 2023

    I recently purchased a one of a kind redfoot tortoise, and I must say it is extremely healthy! He's a little shy, but I'm sure he'll come around soon! Overall very satisfied with my purchase!

    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.
