Default Red foot housing

I have 2 redfoots and I'm looking to upgrade their housing as hey have outgrown the current set up. How big of a viv will 2 adult redfoots need?

Personally if it was me looking for a viv for them I would make it myself as you will struggle to get one big enough I would say a minimum size would be 6x2x2 feet if you could make one or get one made 10 foot long that would do.

Also the bigger you can get it the more you can put in it to help with keeping them a bit more stimulated

Hello guys,

I made a thread to ask some questions about Red Foots here: http://www.shelledwarriors.co.uk/for...ad.php?t=73255

Don't suppose I could latch on and ask a few questions here instead as this section seems more suitable?

Cheers

Hi Laura.

You will need at least 4×8ft. You may encounter problems as they reach sexual maturity too. Really you want a combination of 3 torts. Either 1 male an 2 females or 3 females. With only 2 torts, if you get 2 males they will try and dominate each other to the point one will become depressed, if you have 1 male to 1 female the male could pester your female to the point she can become depressed. Sooooo, to combat a pair running into problems you need to be prepared to split them if you run into problems. You may be lucky and encounter no problems at all.
Do you know the sex of your torts yet? Sorry to sound
Pessimistic, just trying to help. Best combo is 1 male to at least 2 females.
