I've just got back from the Caribbean and whilst there myself and the partner were lucky to see a young wild redfoot.

I just had to share as his shell was what I thought, was perfect. To be expected being in the wild I know but he, or she, was so cute!!

Beautiful and he's demonstrating very well how they keep the shell so smooth, which is by burrowing. Love seeing torts in the wild and it's so hard not to pick them up lol Nice pics x

Some more for you to enjoy.

And yes, it took all the willpower my partner could muster not to pick him up!

Lovely, you can't beat seeing wild ones. It was very upsetting to see Galapagos visitors blatantly flouting the rules and hugging giant torts. So little respect and what will eventually contribute to the banning of visitors to such a fantastic place :(
