The largest redfoot found to date is from the Filidelfia area in Paraguay. It is a large male that is 59.3 cm.
However, numerous other very large specimens have also been found in Paraguay and neighboring Bolivia.
When Pet Farm of Miami, Florida imported over 500 adult redfoots from Bolivia in the early 1980s my wife and I spent many hours going through that group. I saw quite a few that were well over 17 inches. Also, the breeders that I know personally who keep Bolivians all have adults over 14 inches and some that are much larger.
