Anyone who knows me knows it has been awhile since I have bred redfoots. An occasion has risen and I'm looking for new additions now. ( Yvonne compelled me to write the caresheet )

Am looking for the Colombian locale - they are YELLOW.. void of virtually ANY red on head and limbs. Unfortunately this pic [ from breeder friend ] does not show the head because of the sun -



However.. this is an excellent example of the plastron -



Occasionally there is a "diamond" pattern in the center of the plastron.

And a hatchling looks like this -



An adult pair would be ideal - of course smaller sized could work also. They will be kept indoors this winter in a heated and plumbed building in a 32" x 8' table.

Please send pics, etc. to [email protected]

Thank you all for your support..

Terry

Possibly, yes.
"The Tropic Plants" nursery in Tamarac Florida has 4 GIANT Redfoot.
I have no idea of the locale. But I'll get photos later this week.
(I've sent you an Email).
