Scientific name: Chelenoidis carbonaria – Chelonoidis denticulata
Species: Red-footed tortoise – Yellow-footed tortoise
These tortoises are very calm. The female can lay up to 20 eggs at once. The red-footed tortoises live in dry forest and savannas while the yellow footed tortoises live in wet forest.
They feed on fruits, plants and some invertebrates like snails and worms.
“Wheely”, one of our red-footed tortoises, came to us with only three legs, so we created special wheel to replace his missing leg. Today he is able to go wherever he wants!
