Leopard Tortoise Jumbo hatchling
New arrival of a few very well started jumbo leopard tortoises.
These tortoise is readily eating a variety of lettuces, sweet potatoes, and assorted greens! These tortoises do quite well outdoors in Florida provided they have adequate shaded areas and are kept dry during rainy seasons.
Our captive bred Leopard tortoise hatchlings are at least one month old and actively eating. Typical ages range between 3 and six months. Given their young age, their sex remains undetermined and they must be kept in a protected indoor environment. When properly cared for, they will provide a lifetime of enjoyment.

An Expert Breeder/Retailer That You Can Trust
My name is Bill Murray and I'm the proprietor of Redfoot Ranch. Welcome to the Redfoot Ranch website. I have been a reptile enthusiast for a long time. Starting as a hobby, I developed a strong passion for tortoises and turtles. My experience spans many years as a reptile owner. I breed tortoises, turtles and selected snakes and lizards. Like many Redfoot Ranch customers, I care deeply about the proper care and treatment of captive reptiles. I remain active in the Turtle and Tortoise Club of Florida and served as President of both the Clearwater and the Orlando chapters for many years. I continuously seek to improve my breeding and care expertise. I exchange ideas with a large network of industry professionals and hobbyists. I've enjoyed many herping adventures over the years. As part of these adventures, I've gained a greater appreciation for many exotic animal species in their natural habitats. I've also volunteered for numerous conservation efforts. I genuinely enjoy sharing my experiences and expertise with others. I frequently participate in reptile trade shows. You'll often find me providing educational presentations during Repticon reptile shows in Central Florida
A Focused Portfolio With Popular, But Limited Selection
Our principal focus at Redfoot Ranch is the land tortoise. As one would expect from our name, the Redfoot Tortoise (or Red Footed tortoise) is our flagship offering. Native to parts of South America and Central America, it does extremely well in our Florida habitat. We maintain a number of breeding stock to provide a robust supply of hatchlings for this extremely popular tortoise. Our Redfoot Tortoises are known for their great coloring. They are long lived, have great personalities, and make awesome pets. We also offer the rarer Cherryhead Redfoot Tortoise which are especially sought out for their high coloration. We also raise the closely related Yellowfoot Tortoise at the ranch. Various other captive bred tortoises are also available, This includes the Leopard and Sulcata (Spur Thigh) Tortoises from arid regions of Africa; the Hermann Tortoise from grassland regions around the Mediterranean; and the Elongated Tortoise from Southeast Asia. Most of the tortoises that we sell are small captive bred hatchlings within six months of birth. Often, we have adult redfoot tortoises available and, less often, other species of adult tortoises.
Our goal is to maintain a continuous supply of tortoise inventory for sale. In contrast, our selection of available turtles and other reptiles varies widely. Recently available turtles include Musks, African Muds, and Florida Snapping Turtles. We sometimes have captive bred Florida Corn Snakes available. Occasionally, exotic snakes are available. We have a number of breeding initiatives underway - particularly with a variety of boas. We also have initiated breeding projects for some select lizards such as the Columbian Tegu. Stay tuned for updates on these.
