    Great looking redfoots! How do they interact with each other? I have really wanted to start a group I only have one right now.

    They look very healthy! I thought they might appreciate their food even more if you would please sink their dish a bit further down into the substrate, making it easier for them to get at it? And may I ask what the substrate is?
    I love their smooth shells!

    Does it look to you that these areola have worn down into the first 2 growth rings?

    Hi thank you! I don’t sink the bowl cause this is a temporary outdoor enclosure so I don’t leave it out all the time. The substrate that I use I natural fir bark :)

    Thanks! Well they are social animals amongst themselves, they stick together they use the same hide and they do a lot of sitting together. This an established group so they do good together, I haven’t seen any bullying. They’re really fun to keep :)
