WOW! That's great to hear...and very reassuring!
I just bought a 4-year-old Red Foot from PetSmart...they had marked him down from $199.99 to $99.00...I couldn't resist!
I named him "Baby"...I believe he is a male from the inverted carapice (sp?). I have him outdoors in a 3 x 2 wire cage w/ a heat lamp over him for the evenings (California has not been a typical summer yet...nighttime temps are still down in the upper 50's to lower 60's). I take him out twice a day for an hour or so and let him roam the backyard. The neighbors have a messy Mulberry tree that drops hundreds of berries into my yard; "Baby" is trying to consume as many as possible, but just can't keep up with 'em : )
I have turnips, lettuce and chard growing in my garden, and "Baby" gets to help me maintain the area!
My only concern is the humidity; when I bring Baby in for the winter, I will have a humidifier over his aquarium. But what do I do about humidifying an outdoor cage??
