Redfoot tortoise hatchling care, and by this I mean up to an age of 3-4 months, isn’t consistent across the web.
My wife and I created a basic tutorial on what you should be doing on an every other day basis for your new Redfoot(s).
This video assumes you already have the proper enclosure or habitat for your hatchling setup and know what you should be feeding them – the 60% fruit – 40% greens diet at this age. No low fat cat food until they’re 6 months old.
Feel free to leave any comments along with any other ideas on videos you’d like to see on these wonderful torts.

very cute, I saw a baby redfoot tortoise at the petstore. There is mushed up green stuff in a dish, the little thing went in the dish but didn’t eat anything. I put my finger to the glass and it kept opening it’s mouth like it wanted to eat it. It”s neck is dry looking. It is 600 dollars canadian. I want to save it. Can it get healthy or do they look and act like this normally? I want to save it.
