Redfoot tortoise hatchling
Priced From $140.00
Our most popular product, newly hatched captive bred redfoots will not be made available for sale until they are active eaters and they reach at least three weeks of age. 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.
Redfoot Tortoise hatchlings (Chelonoidis carbonaria)
The Redfoot tortoise is native to areas of Central America and northern South America where it lives in tropical grasslands and forest edges of the Amazon Basin. The Florida climate, where we keep our breeders and their captive bred offspring, provides a good substitute environment for these tortoises. As they are also quite adaptable to varying climate conditions, they can be maintained in more northern areas but will need to be kept inside a heated area during winter or other cold periods (e.g., temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit). With their attractive appearance, typical full size of about 12-14 inches, and ease of care, these are our most popular tortoise choice. When properly cared for, they will provide a lifetime of enjoyment.
Our Redfoot breeders openly graze for much of their dietary needs. This is augmented with fresh greens, succulent plants, Opuntia Cactus, and various fruits (e.g., bananas and mangos). Adults also receive a small amount of protein (commercially packaged turtle food such as Mazuri chow, broken down with water) to augment their predominantly vegetable diet. Hatchlings are fed similarly with very little or no protein.
NOTE: Must be 18+ years old to order. Please check your state and local laws concerning captive species before ordering. Turtles and tortoises under 4 inches are sold for scientific, educational, and exhibition purposes only.

12 – 14 inches in length
I’ve had my red foot for a few weeks and I am happy to report that she is still healthy, happy, and very outgoing. I love her with all my heart. I am glad I chose to get my tortoise from Redfoot Ranch. It is evident the amount of expert care they have and their customer service is excellent.
My little Johnithin arrived happy, healthy, and ready to make friends. Me and my family just love hime so much. Great service too a special thanks to bill for the great servece, healthy tortise, and great packaging. Even came with a heating pad to keep him warm during flight. A big thanks from the hole family.
I ordered my Redfoot baby in October it is absolutely beautiful and was social from the second I held it highly recommend shopping here I will be soon to get my current Redfoot a friend
The hatchlings arrived safe and sound exactly when expected. They were/are healthy, active, and doing great. The quality of tortoises and service here is outstanding. Bill checked in every step of the way to make sure the little guys made it safe. I highly recommend the redfoot hatchlings and Redfoot Ranch.
My hatchling arrived well packaged and healthy! I would HIGHLY recommend buying from Bill -- you can tell he really cares about his animals. Also, when you buy from RR, you are supporting a small business, which is better than buying from a large-chain supply petstore like Petco, who don't care about their animals.
Great service and tortoises. A big thanks to Red foot ranch.

I love the customer service! The hatchling caresheet was extremely helpful in tweaking the enclosure. My little redfoot arrived active and ready to eat. Surprisingly not shy at all and definitely not a picky eater. Thank you for the healthy tort!

Beautiful colors and very healthy. Arrived perfect, and was super curious. I got her 2 months ago and she is very active and eats a lot. You can tell the expertise that the owners have and that they love their animals.

Hello Bill. The hatch Lane arrive today. We soaked him as you suggested and put him in his habitat. We are thrilled to welcome him.

I cant say enough about Bill. He was there every step of the way in my concerns and helping me with my set ups. Excellent service!!!
I’ve had my Hatchling a month and it is doing fantastic and growing well!
I've had my redfoot tortoise for about 5 months now and Dill is happy and healthy. Bill was in contact with me before shipping and he was very flexible. I love my lil man. He's very spunky and curious. I would highly recommend purchasing from RedFoot Ranch.
Kai is a wonderful hatchling, appearing on the scene with curiosity, and an appetite! He was greatly admired and declared perfect by all. He ate after a soak and then left a package for me and is still active and busy around the habitat. I love Kai already! Kai will be treasured and cherished all her days.

Received our red foot tortoise hatchlings Wednesday 9/7.
They arrived before their expected delivery time. They are absolutely gorgeous, healthy, active, alert and good eaters. Called to let Bill know they arrived safe and sound. He gave me alot of great information and said to call anytime if we had questions or just wanted to give an update.
Our daughter is thrilled beyond words. She named them Lightning and Bolt, because she loves to watch the lighting.
I strongly suggest Red Foot Ranch. Bill is not only knowledgeable and friendly, but you can tell he has a true passion for the animals and what he does. He wants to make sure that they are well cared for in there new home and not just going to be a passing fancy; but an addition to your family.
I look forward to dealing with Bill and Red Foot Ranch again and won't go anywhere else. The quality, service, support and expertise is out of this world.
Thank You Bill for such wonderful tortoises.
