    Possible shedding or something else??

    Does anyone have any information on shedding? My little ones are 10 months old from the same hatch and one of them has been shedding on the front legs. He's not in any pain or discomfort. All the shedding info I see is mostly on the head and shells. This first pic is from a few weeks ago but...

    Tank mates?

    I have my redfoot in 8’ x 6’ bio active rainforest enclosure and I have the feeling that it’s kind of empty... I’ve been thinking of rainforest animals that could live in the same enclosure as the redfoot but not harm it. Any thoughts?

    Redfoot isnt eating on his own.

    My Redfoot tort (approx. 3 years old) doesnt seem to touch his salad on his own. However, whenever i show him and hand feed him food, he takes it and eats most things i give him. I switch out the food after 24 hours. Heat, humidity, and light sources are all optimal. He's soaked 2 times a week...

    Shell rot?

    I was weighing my fairly new hatchling today and noticed weird "lines" on the bottom of his shell. He's acting totally normal and his shell is not soft anywhere. Is this the beginning of shell rot or something else?

    Hello there!

    Meet my new RF hatchling, Taco! I've had him for exactly a week today and he seems to be adjusting well. He surprisingly loves his morning soaks and will stay in them forever, adores mango, and already comes to me and will eat out of my hand 😍 Thank you to @Southernreptiles for the beautiful baby!

    My redfoot prefers cooler temps, is that weird?

    I've got a 3 yr RF who continually heads to cooler, 50-60F options when they're available. Today's a great example, it's 52F here in Texas, his enclosure is 85F and he's outside hunkered in the grass in the cold weather. Has anyone else experienced this?
