 Shell rot in Baby Redfoots

So I am new to red foot tortoises. I know that most need to be kept dry. the red foot information I have found has been an exception. Is there an increased risk of young red foot torts getting shell rot?

 Shell rot in Baby Redfoots

redfooted tortoises are found in the rain forests. they need high humidity, but shouldnt be kept on wet ground, as they will develop rot. i have never kept these species , only Mediterranean, so im not 100% sure how owners accomplish this. frequent spraying of the enclosure is a must. the torotise trust will have a detailed section on rain forest species
