I have a red-footed tortoise but sadly I don't know how old he is. His name is zipper and has lived with me for around 3 1/2 years.

Also note that red-footed tortoses LOVE humidity. If your tortoise is kept inside or in an outside enclosure in an area with low humidity you must provide them humidity. If you can't provide a smoke machine/mister or frequent sprinklers, I have found it effective to turn a plastic container such as a trash can on its side, bury it a couple inches in the ground, and fill it up with mulch. Keeping the mulch wet all the time allows for a good humidified area that your tortoise can crawl into and regulate his own humidity. Enjoy your red-foot and take good care of him/her!

My husband and I enjoy Bruce Lee at night. He climbs on my husbands shoulder like a cat. He has an awesome personality and has a better pad then we do.
