Red Foot tortoise Habitat
Red-footed tortoises inhabit temperate forests, rainforests, savannahs and dry forests.
Red footed tortoise Behavior
They are diurnal and stay active during the daytime.
They are mostly sedentary and do not move long distances.
They are usually not social but do tolerate the presence of other tortoises in their territory, feeding sites, and group feeding sessions.
Red-footed tortoises take shelters in burrows of armadillos, hollow logs, fallen trees and areas densely vegetated areas for thermoregulation.
Red foot tortoise Diet
They have an omnivorous feeding habit. It eats fruits during the wet season and shifts its diet to flowers during the dry season. They also consume fungi, soil, foliage, pebbles, sand, and carrion.
Red foot tortoise Mating & Reproduction
They mate around the wet season from the months of June to September. Males start making sounds to drive off competition and attract mates. The sounds made during this period resemble the sounds of chickens. Males engage in head-bobbing to intimidate their opponents before starting to wrestle to win over mates, and competitions are won when one individual flips the other onto their back. Females make several nesting sites and lays between 2 and 15 eggs in each location. These eggs are incubated for 117-158 days.
Red Foot Tortoise
The offspring are born with a weight of 0.78-1.06 oz (22-30 g) and a carapace length of 39-45 cm (1.5-1.8 in). They eventually become sexually mature by the time reach a carapace length of 20-25 cm (7.9-9.8 in), which they attain when they are around 5 years old.
Red Footed tortoise Lifespan
They live for around 60-80 years in the wild and can live even longer in captivity.

Perfect Leopard gecko morphs!
I ordered a juvenile leopard gecko for sale for my son as a pet for Christmas.He/she arrived safe and sound! My son had been wanting one for some time and when we had no luck finding the morph he wanted I began looking online and found CBReptile. I messaged them to make sure the Lil guy would be safe to travel all the way to S. Louisiana. They responded quickly and even shipped him out the same day so I could have him before Christmas! Thank you guys and if we decide to add another baby gecko to our gecko family you will be first on my list to order from!

Nicest Dalmatian crested geckos!
I am extremely please with my new baby crested gecko. i ordered a baby female dalmatian crested gecko for one of my other geckos and she’s amazing.!

I could not have had a better transaction! I would buy a tortoise online from CB reptile again in a flash!
The best leopard gecko breeder!
I received my two baby tangerine leopard geckos in the mail. I was very nervous as not a lot of people were shipping. However, the way my babies were packed and shipped was excellent. They arrived safe and sound. They don’t even appear to be too stressed. And can I just say that they are the cutest Leo’s ever and their color is outstanding. More vivid then I had even expected or could have hoped for. I will definitely be purchasing more reptiles for sale from them. 5 stars isn’t enough.
Definitely a repeat customer!
Definitely a repeat customer. I ordered my crested gecko for sale Dec 21st. Of course I wasn’t expecting it for Christmas but I wasn’t expecting the amazing customer service either. CBReptiles cares about their reptiles and that’s amazing. Someone called me every few days to update me on the shipping process. They took every precaution from holiday traffic to winter weather to assure I got a live energetic baby gecko in this weather at this time of year and it worked. It arrived today, safe and sound. The heat pack was still warm.

I purchased a pair of eastern box turtles for sale from these guys last summer and they are doing great 6 months later. I had questions and they were happy to answer them. I would highly recommend these guys for anyone considering a where to buy baby box turtle for sale online!
CB Reptiles is amazing!!!! The customer service is very patient and only wants the best for their customers and reptiles for sale. On top of that the packaging of my baby blue iguana for sale came in yesterday and I’m still completely amazed by how wonderful the package was put together. 100 percent best compared to any other reptile place I have ordered from. They earned my respect fully. I would and will refer everyone to them. Way to go CB REPTILES!!!!

I purchased a baby russian tortoise for sale a few months ago and just purchased a “friend” for her last week. I cannot say enough about this company and how helpful they are.
