In the first few weeks after I brought Malti home, I spent most of my available free time:
- Reading about red-foot tortoises on the internet.
- Checking her habitat every hour on the hour to make sure she was still alive.
Super (scary) fun times.
All that to say – while I am feeling more confident now with 18 fresh months of experience as a tort mama under my belt, I definitely wouldn’t hold myself out as a good resource for red-foot tortoise care just yet.
But I can offer this list of my favorite reference resources, each of which I trust implicitly!
- The Redfoot Tortoise
- Tortoise Supply Red Foot Tortoise Care Sheet
- Ernie Johnson’s Red Foot Tortoise YouTube Channel
- Red Foot Breeder (Ernie Johnson’s website)
- The Redfoot Manual (by Mike Pingleton)
- Red-footed Tortoises in Captivity (by Amanda Ebenhack)
- South American Tortoises (by Sabine Vinke)
