    hermit crabs?

    I had 2 in with my redfoot. I dont think its a good idea. My redfoot would go after the crabs and try to eat them. I had to seperate them.

    New Tortoise

    They really need to be kept in seperate enclosures. Soaking everyday twice a day for 15 -20 min. Lettuce and carrots are not a good diet. Try spring mix. Look into mazuri

    My Diet Plan [baby red foot]

    The grassland pellets are good, i would also suggest masuri. Also i would add more of a variety. They also like sweet potato. Squash. I think your guy will become a little bored with your diet plan. There are many things they can eat. Also be cautious on the eggs. I learned the hard way. It will...

    Male or Female Redfoot?

    Red foot eating ?

    Sounds like he doesnt like the bright lights. Try a regular household bulb not the florescent one. The round ones. A 60 watt...i bet that the lights are too much for him. I would also suggest a che..ceramic heat emitter. For nighttime heating. It doesnt give off light. What are your temps?

    Red foot eating ?
