If I could get a definitive answer, I would, but as with everything reptile related, you rarely get one. I'll just keep looking for a normal male red foot. Thanks for your help.

In most cases anyone who gives you a difinative answer concerning biology... doesn't know what they are talking about.

Can anyone explain why the redfoot and cherryhead are different. I think that most of us know that they are carbonaria but what has made the difference in their appearance.

Is it to do with the environment, foods, genetics?
I would really like to know, or know where I can get the info from.
thanks

Best book on this subject in my opinion, is: South American Tortoises by Sabine Vinke, Thomas Vinke, Holger Vetter & Susanne Vetter. Excellent volume with very detailed information on these animals.
