Default Red Foots I'm thinking of buying

Can we have sex guesses please? I would have to pay for courier and owner has identified them as male and female. Really don't fancy more males, so I'm hoping for both females.
What do we think then?




Also, what do we think is a reasonable price for them-here's the ad. I am not purchasing the viv as way too smallhttp://www.preloved.co.uk/adverts/sh...tortoises.html

Really? That would be great! They don't look in great shell condition and the viv is too small but if I could get the right price I might buy.

Hope you get them, I don't how they think the 2 fitted comfortably in a 2 ft viv up to 12 months old! They look older to me but I don't know much about red foots, good luck x

Thanks everyone-going to try and bang out a price but due to the courier costs and the shell condition don't really want to go over 150. I've also got contact with someone selling a cherryhead pair(one male, one female) for 150 each or 200 pair. The shell conditions aren't great but they're nice looking things so if by some luck they're both females might have a go at that as well.

They look quite big for 3 years old tobi is about 5ish and she looks smaller than that and rubi and scarlet are about 3 and half the size of tobi. They look nice tho see what you are saying about the shells not the smoothest. My three live together tobi has a lovely shell the other two less so but not too bad. Good luck with them all.
