Albino T+ Ivory Sulcatas
and Leopcatas Tortoises

The Ivory Sulcata Tortoise was first reproduced in 2000 and is a dark ruby red eyed form of albino African Spurred Thighed Tortoise which is called a Tyrosine positive albino. Because of the dark ruby red pigment in their pupils they can be safely kept outdoors in the sun without damaging their eyes!

My Breeding group consists of two adult Ivory Albino T+ males, one adult Ivory Albino T+ female and three adult 100% Het Ivory Albino T+ females and I have been successfully breeding them since 2006!

Leopcatas are a hybrid Tortoise between a Leopard Tortoise and a Sulcata Tortoise. I have a male Southern Leopard tortoise, G.p.pardalis, that is 100% Het Hypo for the Wanda Patterson bloodline and he bred my 100% Het Albino T+ Ivory Sulcata tortoise females. I have had few hatchlings in a few of their clutches hatched out hybrids between the two.

In the wild these hybrids are naturally occurring in Africa where the Leopard Tortoise and the Sulcata Tortoises overlap. As you can see in the pictures as they mature they tend to look more like Leopard tortoises which would make them hard to differentiate the hybrids from the pure leopard tortoises in the wild.
