Thanks, much appreciated.

They need to be ~6 inches long or 5-7 years old to be certain UNLESS your breeder can tell you the incubation temps (84-86 gets you a mix so you;d be SOL) then you'd have a higher (but not definitive) ability to know the sex. Stubby tail and flat plastron are male characteristics, but they can change as "it" closes in on 5-7 inches long.

Pyramiding isn't a death sentence and at this age can be ameliorated to a degree as "it" gets older.

The adults that look like a four legged hand grenade are the ones that can have all kinds of health issues and (if they're a female) if you try to breed her too frequently.
Ernie, Really nice job on the course. I refer back you it regularly.

I had some requests on an old thread I did on some different types of redfoots I have had over a decade or longer. So here is some new photos of some.

Venezuelan F3 12 year olds (Male on right Female on left)

Male on right female on left


Guyana WC male F2 Female( Male on left unknown age LTC 11 years, Female CBF2 12 years old)



Bolivian Male F2 (male is 7 years old)



Bolivian Female F2(Female is 12 Years old)



Suriname WC (Female is smaller one male is larger LTC 15 years)



Brazilian F2 (Male CBF2 10 years old female 8 Years old)




Should be enough for now.
Could you help ID exactly my 2. One is a Yellow foot female 35 years old. 2nd is a male Red foot 30 years. They have lived together for 12 to 15 years... Previous owner said she laid eggs several times and discarded them due to no interest in incubating. Can you cross these two? When are their prime age to have young? Any other info will be appreciated!

Beautiful collection!
Posted new pictures taken today more in detail to get a positive ID on them. Female adopted as Yellow foot and Male as Red foot. 35 and 30 years old lived together last 20 years. Original owner got Yellow foot in Arizona 34 years ago... Red foot was adopted later 20 years ago.

Any thoughts on the location of origin for this girl? My guess is Barbados because of the large, pronounced scales on the front legs.

Hi Katsy, Starting from left to right, it looks like you have two males. Your biggest one (on the right) I can't quite see enough of the tail.
