There are two types of Albinos
#1 Red eyed Albinos
#2 Ruby eyed "Ivory" Albinos
It requires two genes to be a "Visual animal" visual animals display the yellow coloration of the shell and the red eyes. (show the Albino Colors).
Het stands for Heterozygous, which means the animals have one of the two genes necessary to be visual (show the Albino Colors).
When an animal is a Het it looks normal (not like an Albino)
The offspring of two mated Het animals will produce visual Albino animals.
For "Spur" Sulcate tortoise there are two types of Albinos and one normal, that are available, both Albinos come in, #1 Het has one gene for albino and #2 Visual has both Albino genes and looks bright yellow like an Albino because, it is a pure genetic Albino).
#1 Pink eyed Albino
Het for Pink Eyed Albino
#2 Ruby eyed "Ivory" Albinos
Het for Ruby eyed "Ivory" Albino (these animals are Het (have one of the two genes) for Ivory they look normal and have normal eyes).
Normal Animals have no Albino genes
If you cross a Het Albino with a Het Albino you will get 25% Visual Albinos.
The other 75% of the clutch is said to be 66% for Het Albino
Which means they all look normal some are Hets and some are normal and carry no Albino genes.
I have a great group of Sub Adult Aldabra tortoises, this is a great group for someone looking to build a breeding colony. there are males and females in this group. These animals come from Seychelles, so they are a bit older than USA Aldabras at the same size. This is because of the slower natural growth in Seychelles. These are nice looking animals check out how smooth their shells are. I am offering a special Group price, please contact me for details.

Large 33" inch Male Aldabra with two 20 inch females and one 20 inch possible male.
Sex not confirmed for the three smaller ones.
Great start on a breeding project with that big male.
Larger breeding males are impossible to find and the cost skyrockets (Look at Group #1)
1.3), Big 600 Lb male
Two 25-year-old 200lbs females
One additional older female comes with the group, she has walking problems
but mates with the male all the time.
This is it, it doesn't get any better than this.
I sold a group like this to a customer in October 2017 and he was breeding Aldabra Hatchlings in less than two years.
I have an interesting group of Giant Redfoot tortoises. I have males at 16 inches and females at 14 inches
The animals we’re all raised and bread on their own naturally.
They hatched out of the ground on their own and they made their way through a lot on their own for almost 40 years.
In 1992 Hurricane Andrew destroyed the South Florida Homestead area.
After the hurricane, a couple of adult Redfeet were found wandering the streets.
They were the lucky ones many pets and other domestic animals were lost in the storm.
The Tortoises were rescued and given a large plot to live.
However, basically on their own. Over the years the animals reproduced.
These offspring are now Adult Breeding Animals between 8 and 15 Years old
They are the offspring from the 1992 Hurricane Andrew disaster “Group”
I believe they are fourth and Fifth generation animals.
That group has to find a new home now, the owner of the lot has to move out of the state and can no longer provide their land.
The interesting thing is they were all hatched naturally right out of the ground, they were never incubated
and they were never brought inside or protected from the weather or additional Hurricanes in any way.
The surprising thing is, these animals are so Big with round domed shells
They are healthy and heavy. There has never been any sickness.
I am excited to be offering this group with a little history.
The animals are perfect in every way, big, strong and healthy.
I believe these animals would make a great group for others looking to breed them or they would make a great pet
Giant Barbados Redfoot Tortoise
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.
People have reported that the Barbados RedFoot Tortoises have developed unique coloration and markings including a domed shell shape.
There are some sources that state, some of the largest RedFeet today are the Barbados decedents, with shell sizes reported at 18 inches for males and 15 inches for females. There is a specimen in the Barbados Zoo representing this size.
