We have some gorgeous captive bred red-footed tortoises that are 2 years old, currently around 6 inches. These are hold backs that have been raised in a closed chamber. Eating everything from fruit to leafy greens to animal protein.
*Please note that these have a little pyramiding in their carapace. This does not harm them in anyway, its a sign of captive bred animals.
Red-footed tortoises are such that; Tortoises with red feet. Well, they sorta have red feet. They have gorgeous, red markings on their front and back legs. The red-footed tortoise (Chelonoidis carbonarius) is a species of tortoise from northern South America. These medium-sized tortoises generally average 30 cm (12 in) as adults, but can reach over 40 cm (16 in). They have loaf-shaped (football) shells with dark limbs that have bright colored scales that range from pale yellow to dark red. They are popularly kept as pets, and over-collection has caused them to be vulnerable to extinction, so please purchase captive bred tortoises instead of store bought, as most store bought are wild caught. They make great companions, whom have very likable personalities. They do best in closed chambers, where it is high heat and high humidity. They thrive outside in the southern states where humidity and heat is high.
Remember, for every tortoise bought from Tortstork, $10 is donated to a turtle/tortoise conservation group to help save these amazing animals.
