    Do you see possible marbeling?

    I don't see it the marbling. I've never seen any marbling on one that isn't a cherry-head before. Where are you guys seeing it? -Matt

    Anyone has pics of a "yellow" redfoot?

    Here is one of mine as Geochelone_Carbonaria mentioned. She's an older girl, in her late 30s. She has no red on her at all. This female has a little bit of orange on her legs, but no red at all on her face. -Matt

    Yellow Foot age and sex help

    Yellow-foots are very sensitive tortoises. They are generally shy in nature and tend to stress easily. Wild caught individuals seem to be extra sensitive and I always advise against purchasing one from the wild since they die easily. Yes, like bobbymoore said, they can lay infertile eggs. -Matt

    New Redfoot

    I'm glad you like him! He was the first that I've ever had with split scutes, they're kind of interesting. I have about 4 or 5 more that I'm waiting on to hatch, shouldn't be too much longer. It was nice talking with you the other day, don't be a stranger! -Matt[hr] He was born roughly two...

    Any Guesses

    All three females. We're not looking for tail size, more than we're looking at how close the cloaca is the the tip of the tail. -Matt

    Washing Eggs?

    I wash all of mine under the faucet. I mark them with a pencil and put them in the incubator. I've never had any problems with it. -Matt

    It's going to be infertile unfortunately. -Matt

    You know, I always turn to Youtube for this kind of stuff, but I honestly didn't think I would get help for this. Good idea, I'll try it. -Matt

    Quick fix for nesting female.

    I like it because it doesn't clump up on the eggs. I've noticed that I got a lot of mold while using the other vermiculite. -Matt

    iPhone user, can't figure out how to post with the app.

    I just switched from Android to iPhone recently. I downloaded the app, which I think is awesome, but I can't figure out how to post a new thread. Can you also load pictures from your gallery? I'm basically transferring my phone photos to my photobucket account, then copying and pasting them...

    Quick fix for nesting female.

    This girl is like clockwork. Seems that she lays a clutch every month from July to January. It was a bit cool when I found her digging this nest, so I hung a heat lamp over her while she finished up. Seemed to work, she laid 5 nice eggs! Jeff, this is the fine grain vermiculite I was...

    outside temperature

    I will bring my red-foots in if it gets below 55, but only if it's below 55 for several nights in a row. Here in Texas, the temps fluctuate so much. They are incredibly cold tolerant, but I still don't like to chance it too much. I think of them like they are batteries. If they're warm during...
