    Lucy’s new home to be

    I’m working on new enclosure for red foot yearling Lucy. I keep on looking up ideas and pictures, but now that I’m starting, all ideas are gone. What shall I make as ground cover? I’m gonna have part grass, some wood chips and rocks… Edible plants? Hawaii is limited, so I’d have to order.

    I just finished renovating Taco's enclosure! I added a new hide (he outgrew his old one), new plants, and some more sphagnum moss. He seems to love it so far!

    New red foot tortoise seems nervous+not eating?

    So I just brought a juvenile redfoot home yesterday, got him all set up in his new enclosure, and he seems to be doing ok-ish. I was wondering how to know if he's doing well or if his behaviors are something I should be concerned about? So far he mostly just sits and bobs his head in and out...

    Upgrading Redfoot Enclosure

    Hey everyone! I have a beautiful ~7 month old redfoot that I purchased from Southern Reptiles last year. He's already more than doubled in size and quadrupled in weight since October.

    New with no knowledge.

    Just got a red foot from Petsmart yesterday utterly unprepared. Currently in a 45 gallon plastic bin with Cypress mulch, a 100watt ceramic heat emitter and a 5.0 uvb bulb, I’ve got the heat emitter right next to the hide so she can bask under it and help keep the humidity up in the hide. I can’t...

    Redfoot Hatchling Enclosure

    Hello all! I just received my RF hatchling in the mail yesterday, and wanted to share his enclosure setup. On the warmer side I have a UVB bulb (on a 12 hour timer) and a basking lamp. I am going to be switching out the basking lamp for a CHE today, as I've found the lamp dries out the tank...
