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.
Happy and healthy hatchlings. As always, communicative customer service and beautiful reptiles. Thanks!
Beautiful and healthy sub adult female redfoot
The turtle source always ships with great care and emailed me with the option of shipping to a UPS center near me since temps would be above 85 and they could guarantee an earlier morning delivery time shipping to a center. It worked perfectly and she arrived at 9 am while temps were still mild. I have ordered many aquatic turtles and tortoises from the turtle source over the years and they know what they are doing. I was shipped a beautiful sub adult female redfoot. She is a good weight, isn't shy at all and started eating from my hand right away. I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to add this beauty to my group!
