Red Footed Tortoise

In the wild Red Footed Tortoises are found in a variety of environments from dry grasslands to humid forests. Breeding occurs with the beginning of the rainy season.

Males identify each other through a characteristic head movement that is a series of jerks away from and back to a middle position. If another tortoise is a male, he will make the same head movements. Males will battle each other, attempting to turn over one another.

DID YOU KNOW? Tortoises can’t swim, but they can hold their breath for a very long time.
