    Q's on buying red foot/cherryhead

    Hi guys, my tortoise quest has been pushed back a bit- I got a beardie, then adopted a tiny beardie with MBD. She is taking up my time and $ right now. So part of my reasoning on the cherry head (other than they are gorgeous!) is they should be able to eat the same salad as my beardies...
