Red-footed tortoises have a unique coloured pattern on their shell and have red coloured feet and face. 


Red-footed tortoises can be kept in a tortoise table with heating or vivarium and can be outside in summer months. These tortoises are tropical tortoises and are used to humid hot weather so should be sprayed with warm water regularly. Red-footed tortoises should also be bathed in warm water once a week to keep them hydrated. 

For all our tortoises it is essential to add multi-vitamin supplements to their daily diet(Nutrobol/Calcium Powder). A good mixture of plants and vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, dandelion, peas, chickweed etc. Visit our tortoise diet page to find out more info.

All tortoises require ultra violet lighting for 14 hours per day to stimulate appetite, activity and vitamin D3 synthesis which can also be given through natural sunlight, it promotes long health.

Red-footed tortoises do not hibernate.
