    In Pritchard's Turtles of Venezuela, he states the largest RF (at the time) was a Venezuelan. http://www.tortoise.org/archives/carbonar.html (old article)

    A New Update on red foot types

    There are yellow-only RF's from a particular area of Colombia. There are also 'normal' RF's near by. The orange ones may be interbreeding between the two populations. http://hlogic.net/images/allyellow.jpg http://hlogic.net/images/noredzone.jpg http://hlogic.net/images/WhiteYellow.jpg

    can some have a look see if egg looks ok please

    Red skin on red eared slider

    I think you have a rather colorful RES that is coming of age. Unless it changes radically from what it is towards unhealthy looking, I would not be concerned. It may become even more red as he matures.
