Descriptions

This is an old and interesting story.

Barbados is home to the oldest Captive Bred Redfoot Animals that has been recorded.

Back around 1850, Red-foots were imported and given to the British Governor of the Barbados Island as pets
ALL The Redfoots on Barbados (and animals in St Maaureen are descendants from that group).
As time march on and around 1950, the animals found their way into some of the locals who eventually bred the tortoises.
