Man stupid pet store this is so frustrating. They were so adamant about redfoot , even the vet saidbshes a redfoot.Your tortoise is a desert tortoise, like has been said above. This means it is illegal to buy/sell them, as they are protected in their home states. You can contact any chapter of the California Turtle and Tortoise Club and they will issue you a permit to keep the tortoise.
Not always they can have red, yellow, orange, even pinkish looking sometimes. Here's a pic of my Redfoot for comparison. Notice the difference in the head shape, and scales on the front legs compared to your tort.Also I'm not worried about the money I'll get the permit, I'm just worried I'm not giving her the proper care. Do all redfoots ALWAYS have red on them?
I do notice it, I'm at work atm but on lunch I'll take a closer comparison look, I just want to be 100% sure she's not a redfoot before changing her habitat and redoing her outdoor enclosure
