Ghost Red Footed Tortoise: Geochelone carbonaria
Category: Rare & Exotic
Experience Level: Starter [?]
Care Sheet: Red-Footed / Yellow-Footed Tortoise
This very light shelled tortoise hatched from our group of high colored adults. It's shell is a faded whitish blue color - it's growth lines are coming in brown instead of the normal black. It's scale and head color is a bright orange/red. This unusual color phase turned up as another interesting result of breeding our high color Red Foots together for several generations. It's behavior and care are the same as that for normal colored Red Footed Tortoises and follows:
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. *
