    Wanting an unusual looking tortoise, whether it be missing scutes, have unusual coloration or particularly gorgeous markings, or a variant of a more usual tortoise, such as a Blonde/high white leopard tortoise, a Cherryhead redfooted, or an ivory sulcata. I'd prefer a hatchling to raise.

    Could reply to this thread/PM if you have something in that category, or a recommendation for a breeder.thanks!

    Tom does have gorgeous leopards but not blond ones.
    There is a member with blond leopards that might be able too help and a new member with an ivory sulcata that might help. I'll try to find them. A Cherry head shouldn't be too hard to find.

    @tacotaco has the hatchling ivory sulcata.
    Also @DeanS might be able to help with the sulcata

    @TylerStewart has some gorgeous cherry heads and you can always request extra scutes.

    Hey.. yep, I got Taco from Richard Fife at Riparian Farms. Great breeder even better guy! By the way, Fife is the original breeder of the Ivory Sulcata tortoise! So not only will you have an very unique and rare tortoise but you’d be getting it from the original breeder of the kind!

    Thanks for the info!! I'm deciding if the Ivory's are for sure what I'd like, as due to the price tag want to be 100% sure. Trying to find videos/pictures of them in my spare time. If I do decide to get one, it'll be worth the money to get from a reputable breeder!
