Default Dwarf redfoot

Do they really exist or is the dwarf a myth?
Some research suggests that it's just a way to persuade the less knowledgeable to buy......

It's a myth, and dealers like to try and sell you what you want by lying.

though Cherry heads are smaller but wouldn't call them dwarf. Gnomes I would call dwarf. Lord of the rings etc....Cherryheads just smaller than the other redfoots. Gordon would know cause he has them in droves.......! CB

I believe cherry heads are smaller but redfoots get HUGE! I have a friend with a group who were adult when they got them, 30 odd years ago and omg they're massive, yellow foots too. Lovely torts.
