    Dazed and confused

    Yesterday I noticed that my oldest RF has started to try and climb out of the outdoor enclosure. I found him/her yesterday upside down and I am afraid they will do this while I am away for extended hours. Any suggestions? The other five are content with staying inside

    Outdoor Cherryhead Questions

    AllegraF is a breeder of RFs and she gave some very sound advice. I just put my yearling Bolivians outside yesterday. I have found that hatchlings or anything under a yr need those constant temps and humidity. I am even bringing mine inside when the night temps fall below 70 for them.

    A New Update on red foot types

    Hey Kelly. Did I miss your measurement for the Bolivian? My two just turned 1 this month. Finally took them out of their inside enclosure and put them with my Brazillians. Still acting like a nervous mother checking on them every hour. Can't wait until they get bigger so I can put them with my...

    Diatomaceous Earth?

    Works well in goats and humans, too. Just make sure you get the food grade. I got mine in the gardening area at the local feed store.

    My Redfoot is Lost in the Backyard and I am worried about night time tempatures

    Happened to me last week with one of my baby Bolivians. Both out in the sun and 10 minutes later could only find one. Hands and knees along every edge you have in the lost area. I panicked too because the temps were dropping that night, but after about 1 hr and 30 feet from last known spot I...

    Comparison. Really cool!

    Very cute little one. I first thought where are they that they are on white sand, then I enlarged the pictures and realized that they were on a towel. That's what I get for looking at pictures on my phone. EBTs are fantastic looking

    Look who popped up today

    With crazy weather we are having in Central Texas, I didn't know what was going to happen. Dixie came out Monday and now today with temps in the mid 60's here is Jeter. Weather turning again next week. So, I will have to keep an eye on them to make sure they are deep enough. I might have to...

    Let's Trade!

    Since nobody else is responding about the law update in LA, these are not turtles. They are tortoises and the law does not apply

    Red foot eating ?

    agree with everything already posted. Just be will come around. Things to check for: enclosure substrate, heat and lighting. Sometimes when mine are young and new to the group, I place them near the food dish. This might spark them to eat, but don't worry if they turn around and...

    Honu's dislike of greens

    It is funny. Sometimes mine eat them and other times they turn away from them. I sometimes wonder if this is the day they find some other food source in their outdoor enclosure. Just keep providing them. If they are hungry they will eat.

    Advice please (hibernation)

I soaked her don't know if that was a good thing or not but I was worried that she would be frozen in the water. I was thinking the tarp over their...
