Description

Cherry Headed Red Footed Tortoises are a very pretty, slightly smaller version of the classic Red Footed Tortoise. Their head and leg scales are often bright red or orange. Some are born with lighter shells, and others with darker shells (see our photos). All Cherry Heads grow up to have bright red/orange heads & legs. Found in limited areas, primarily in the Paraguayan Chaco, and the Brazilian rain forests, these impressive tortoises are well sought after in the tortoise world. Ours are captive born here in the US, and should not be confused with the larger imports available. Husbandry for Cherry Headed Red Footed Tortoises is essentially the same as for standard Red Footed Tortoises - and follows:

*Right now, we are raising a nice group of Cherry heads with outstanding colors - you can pick your gender, and you can select yours from a photo if you like. *

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. *
