    Hello, Kimberly, and a very warm welcome to Tortoise Forum to you and Jos.:)
    Remember that when bringing up a baby redfoot humidity and temperatures are key.

    Hi Kimberly, great to see another Dutchie with a redfoot! Your tort looks really good! Where do you live (I live in Driebergen)?

    I also found little information on redfoots in Dutch, so I wrote my own caresheet, based on the info on among others this forum and the two websites linked above. A shorter English version is on this forum: http://www.tortoiseforum.org/threads/redfoot-care-sheet-sticky.149266/
    But I could send you the Dutch version by e-mail if you are interested?

    Tot ziens op het forum en veel plezier met je schildpad!
