Does anyone want a Red-footed tortoise? I believe it is a female.

Shocked
Want and have the ability to own are two very different things.

You're right! I considered taking it, but after reviewing the enclosure and environmental requirements decided against it. The tortoise is an adult.

Do you still have that Redfoot? I'll take it off your hands.

Thanks!
I'll check to see if the tortoise is still available. Due to the weather I would not expect a reply until the end of the week at best.

What i was saying was that i had 1 stolen from me in 2011. I saw your post and wondered if it might be the same redfoot. Did you have it long? Did you know the person you got it from?

If I remember correctly, someone emailed me or the VHS about a turtle they had found. It was identified (not by me) as a female red-footed tortoise. I never had possession of the animal and along with several other people we were trying to find it a suitable home. Unfortunately, I don't have the emails regarding who found the turtle or where it was placed. I'm sorry I can't be of greater assistance.

You may want to check with Bonnie of Virginia Reptile Rescue as the turtle may have ended up in her facility. - http://www.vareptilerescue.org

Sorry, I don't remember where the turtle was found. During the course of a year we receive about a dozen requests from all over the state to identify "found" exotic herps and then try to find suitable homes for these animals. I suspect that the turtle was found in the tidewater area and that's why I posted it on this forum. Back in 2011. I think the majority of forum members were in or near the tidewater area.
