    Decided to start a thread where I can keep updates on Doris! She’s a redfoot hatchling I got from Tortoise Supply on 10/23/18. Current setup is 55g aquarium converted to closer chamber, temp ~84, humidity in 90s. Today is the first day I’ve gotten her to eat in front of me and I’m so excited!

    Was she sold as a Cherryhead?
    She appears to be from that photo.
    Nice looking little animal.

    She wasn’t sold as a cherry head, she was listed as a “high color redfoot”.

    I came home from work today ready to soak her and found her soaking herself! She’s such a smart baby.

    I got Doris mid-October last year as a hatchling so I’m gonna say she’s about officially a year old now! Here are a couple of photos from the week I got her in comparison with one from today - same dish in all photos.

    She’s grown super smoothly and I’m very happy with it! She’s been outside all summer and will move back in for the winter sometime in the next few weeks.
