    Is there a max age for female red foot for nesting?

    Hi all, Everywhere I read about the maturity of red foot and the age when they start laying eggs, but is there a max age for the females for laying eggs? I have got a breeding group 1:3 of big heavy red foot tortoises that are estimated to be 35 years old and I want to be prepared. Cheers, Carlos

    I decided to not adopt it since I already have 1.0.5 tortoises. How much protein do you feed your tortoise and what kind of food is it?

All year around I fees cactus (Opuntia Vulgaris). With these greens I am sure they get the correct nutritions and the right calcium/phosphorus ratio...

    I feed my RF greens 4 days per week, vegetables 2 days and 1 day fruits. The portion size is twice the size of his head. Also 1 time per month animal protein like an earth worm. He is very string and healthy 🥳

    Very healthy bad beautiful 😍. I appreciate very much all your help, I am just not that experienced so I am trying to understand your reasoning. I have also learned that this RF cannot be an 8 years old otherwise a very unhealthy one!

    Thank you very much for the detailed answer :<3:!I am curious why do you really think (s)he has a poor body condition? Because the feet are a little thin? Maybe that’s just in the picture?!
