I came across an add about a lady stating she has a 4 yr old yellowfoot. So I'm taking a drive to see this tortoise in person. I asked her to send me a pic of the tortoise-crappiest picture ever!!! It was so blurry. Anyways, I think it's a redfoot and we will see. I'm meeting her in about 3 hours. I hope it's not a scam, I'm going alone :eek:. So we will see if I have a yellowfoot at last :p.

Oh I am so jealous! *fingers crossed* Keep us posted and be safe. Your family or friend knows where your going and other details just in case right?
Well my husband thinks I'm going with a friend, that friend was going to go with me but the time frame got changed. She can't go now :-( but I'm going to call the lady in just a bit. I'll be ok!! I've just never met up with a stranger before for getting things. So I have the Craigslist killer in my head lol! I'll be sure to keep Ya updated. I'm really having a feeling it's a redfoot. But it's about a 45 min drive. So if it's a yellowfoot I'll be so happy and it was worth it. I can't wait to post pics if it really is a yellow!! Many people think they have a yellow but it's a redfoot. I'll let you know soon :) I've yet to see a yellow in person!! It might be a real good Friday afterall!

Just got off the phone with the lady. She stated she special ordered this tortoise years ago. So I'm very anxious to see this tortoise. I thought she said she's 4 yrs old but apparently almost 6 yrs old. So she's had this tortoise since a hatchling & it's getting too big. I can't wait to post pics. It may be true a yellowfoot at last:)

Ok... First off I'm not sure if she's a yellowfoot. She looks for sure a redfoot. It turned into a rescue mission! This tortoise is in horrendous shape, dry, foil pieces in her home. The place stunk so bad. Here she is

That's a Redfoot and in not as bad condition as I thought after reading your first post. It's hard to tell but that pic makes the shell look concave like a male. Good save, it needed a better home for sure.
