These absolutely stunning tortoises 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.
Enjoy picking out your favorite one. If you have any questions please email email@example.com
Remember, for every tortoise bought from Tortstork, $10 is donated to a turtle/tortoise conservation group to help save these amazing animals.
