"True" Bolivian Redfoots have been rare in private collections until now... early 2016 -
mainly because only 2-3 breeders exist today.
This 'blood-line' reportedly came into the U.S. in 1982 consisting of less than 150 total..
and was the ONLY shipment until 20 years later when maybe 20 were brought in!
Where the adults and their hatchlings went until the late 2010's.. only they know?
I managed to make a trade to acquire the above female - And -

acquire a few 2015 ~ 2016 hatched as well!
