Hi there,

That hot spot may be a little warm for a redfoot. 29-30c would be fine for them. Try to keep the humidity up around 70% too.

Thanks, humidity is at 70% the temp i took is at ground level, will turn it down a touch, was just concerned as they seem to be staying asleep unless i wake them, so will try that.

thanks again

Humidity is good. Too hot will cause tortoises to be inactive as much as too cold. Let us know how it goes.
