More Tortie ?'s >>Redfoots

Ok, so I've decided I would probably go with a Redfoot tortoise if I do go ahead with it (which will probably not be for at least another year or two, but that's all the more time to better prepare ). Caresheets, as wonderful as they are, are not personal keeping experiences, and the ones that are are simply one opinion. What I'm out to find is as many opinions I can on keeping these absolutely adorable little guys. Anything you guys can tell me would be greatly appreciated

>>How well would one fare with some, but not alot of outdoor summer exposure?

I do not own any re d foots but we do have four large redfoots at work .. during the winter they are kept in a 5 by 10 enclosure (on display) and during the summerdays .. they are taken outside for a goood 7 hours a day .. It seems to be a very good mix for them .. although all Our lightings for totoises are uv.. Wich they greatly need..

Don't know what else to tell you .. hmm .. maybe if u do take them outside to make sure that the grass and dandylions (sorry i'm french and dont know how to spell it) are not sprayed with pesticides .. THEY LOVE dandylions!

Personlly some of the most beutiful totoises i have seen - they are up there with the spur thights for me!

Best of luck ..

If u have any other question .. try to be specific .. i might be able to help or find the info for you..

Take care

redfoot tortoise

Get Mike Pingleton's book - it's available at Carapace Press and I think Amazon. The Tortoise Trust website is one of the best places for accurate information on torts.
Good Luck!
