My redfooted tortoises live in a "rain forest." There is only dappled sun throughout the day, with full sun shining in only in the mornings. There are butterfly bushes, fig trees, rose of sharon trees and a VERY large fruitless mulberry tree that keep it cool and shady throughout the day. For moisture, I have a line of T-posts going down through the center of the area with drip line attached at the tops of the T-posts. I use drip emitters that send out a 5' sprinkler-type pattern of water. I turn this on daily about 1p and it runs the rest of the afternoon. The tortoises have the lid off of a garbage toter and it is sunk down into the ground, for water. They love going into the water and sometimes on real hot days spend the whole afternoon just sitting in the water. For food, I offer different greens (collard, raddicchio, mustard, endive, escarole, romaine, green leaf, mulberry leaves, grape leaves, etc. And about three times a week I add different kinds of fruit to that. A couple times a week I offer them either hard boiled egg including the shell, or venison/sweet potato Wellness brand dog food. My RF tortoises are just coming on adulthood. One of the females pooped out a few eggs last summer, not fully understanding about digging a nest, etc. They weren't fertile, as the male is a few years behind the females in size. I also have a rescued male who is older, but quite deformed (he's up for adoption). The RF tortoises have free access to the rainforest, but can retreat to an insulated shed any time. The shed is heated and in the winter they have to stay in the shed with access to a small area outside on warmer days. I have to go outside now and take care of the animals, but while I'm out there I'll take some current pictures of the tortoises and their rainforest and continue this thread.
