Red foot tortoise for sale – humidity
Humidity is important with all forest species of tortoise. Redfoot tortoises for sale, like the cherry head tortoise for sale, and baby yellow foot tortoise require higher humidity than most species of tortoise. Humidity levels for redfoot tortoises for sale should be in the neighborhood of 65-75% at all times.
Habitats can really be made from anything from a fish tank to a tortoise box, to an old table. Using something that works for your particular application is key from the start. For example: If you live in south Florida, you will eventually be keeping your baby red foot outside once he or she is a yearling to juvenile. Those who live in the northeast and colder areas may keep their tortoise indoors year-round, or most of the year. The main thing to consider when setting up your red foot tortoise habitat is making sure you can maintain humidity in the area of 75% most of the time.
Red foot tortoise Size
Baby Red-footed tortoise hatchlings for sale normally measure approximately 1½ to 2 inches in carapace length out of the egg. Growth rates are variable depending on many factors but are mostly based on the amount and quality of food they are taking in as well as the temperatures they are exposed to.
Red-footed tortoise adult size is generally somewhere between 11 to 14 inches in length, with some exceptions to this rule. We have had females as small as 9 inches in length lay eggs. However, it is more likely with females in the 11 to 12 inch range. Like most tortoises, red-footed tortoises grow rapidly for the first five years, then their growth slows with age.
Their natural habitat ranges from savannah to forest edges around the Amazon Basin. They are omnivorous with a diet based on a wide assortment of plants, mostly fruit when available, but also including grasses, flowers, fungi, carrion, and invertebrates. They do not brumate, but may aestivate in hot, dry weather.
