Sadly, I need to re-home my pet South American Red-Footed Tortoise Buddy. He is full grown with a great personality. He is very friendly, a good eater, and in good health. He will even follow you around outside! Based on his size, and the rings of his scutes, Buddy is at least 16-20 years old. He is about 18 long, bigger than a football, and in the range of 8-9 pounds.
He typically spends the warm weather months in my fenced-in back yard, however this spring I had a bear come into the yard several times. I am terrified to leave him out there now and that just isnt fair to him.
Please do some research on what it takes to own a Red-Footed Tortoise before contacting me. He needs a large (at least 4 x 8) indoor enclosure for the winter as Red-Footed Tortoises do not hibernate. Specific lighting, heating, substrate, a heated hide box, etc. A very large, safe outdoor area to graze; must have access to sunlight, shade and water all day. A heated hide box for those chilly nights is also a wise idea. Red-Footed Tortoises eat a varied diet, including fresh greens, vegetables, and he will need high calcium greens as well. As I said, please do some research!
Buddy will come with his indoor table, which is built on a twin size bed base with storage drawers underneath, and all his supplies. This table will require two people to get it out of the house, as I would not be able to help you get it out. I use reptile specific substrate in his enclosure, and have both a light rig and a heated platform for him.
Buddy needs the right home, where he can get protected outdoor time, and great care. I will want to meet and talk with you, to make sure Buddy can go to a good forever home. There will be a fee for Buddy, and all of his included items.
