This has been a long, long wait but well worth it. I started building my hypo Redfoot group back in 2015 when I acquired my first 2 females, took me quite some time after to acquire a male. I’ve put a lot of money, time, and care into my group and it is now giving fruit. The quality and coloring on these hatchlings are by far some of the nicest I’ve ever seen. I’m so stoked right now, just had my 3rd hatchling hatch today. I can’t stop watching these little fellows!!!

They're beautiful! Are these from N2TORT's stock?

Wow! What is the lineage on these? I have never seen any hypo redfoots that are anywhere near that vibrant, congrats!

Thanks everyone. These are not N2torts lineage, I have joe terrys line from unrelated bloodlines and a female that was imported from Venezuela 15 years ago.

very nice. I have 4 hets from the Joe Terry animals that are looking pretty sweet about 6 inches. These are the brightest reds out there in the hypo line.

In the sunny south...
Those are just amazing. And...if all red-foots looked like that, the black ones (what we consider normal) would be amazing. Rarity is a seductive thing...

Impressive female and the hatchlings are fantastic. Is the female in the photo the one imported from Venezuela? If not would you mind sharing a picture of her? She is very rare as she is unrelated to both N2Torts and Joe's! One last question, are you producing any hets from the 3 adults?

Very cool! What has your hatch rate looked like? How large is your female? She's a beaut!
