Hello all! We got our baby redfoot yesterday morning. We named him/her Jackpot since he/she came from Las Vegas! Wondering if his shell looks normal? I don’t really know what it should look like but didn’t know if the bottom of shell should have a dark spot like this? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, that's perfectly normal. The wrinkling around the dark spot will smooth out as he grows. He was attached to the yolk at that area. And the dark is just pigmentation.

Keep him nice and humid and he will keep that fantastic looking shell. What a cutie!
