Hypo Redfoot tortoise hatchling


These absolutely stunning hatchlings are a new bloodline to the united states.  They are F1 (first generation) offspring of imported adults from Venezuela.  What does hypo mean? It is short for hypomelanistic.  It means reduced melanin (gene that creates pigment in your body).  The animal doesn’t lack it completely, it just has less of it, resulting in an animal that is lighter than normal but still as bright as an albino without the red eyes.
