Breeder Comments

“If you keep breeding for the best color, producing a very pretty tortoise is possible. Do that for several generations over many years, and some of your offspring can turn out like our high-color red-foots. About a dozen each year are produced from hundreds. Their colors are so vibrant, you find yourself looking at them over and over again to be sure your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. Set up and husbandry for these pretty tortoises is exactly the same as for normal-colored red-foots.”
