    @mark109r What's happening, can you get photos of the other eye. I know photoshopping is s painstaking procedure but this is taking the Micheal.

    I think that of course, this is a real joke.
    Prove me wrong.

    It looks pretty real to me.............
    From the response of the collective, if this is a real blue eyed Northern Redfoot. It is SUPER unusual.
    ...To answer your initial question.
    So rare that none of us have ever seen another.

    Did the person you purchased her from have any other sibling tortoises?

    Beautiful animal. What were the reasons for the last owner to sell this girl. I'm guessing it was the only one, because I wouldn't have let a blue eyed redfoot go if I had it within a herd.

    No. That'd be a real keeper!

    Tammy, you are just too envious!
    She must be one of a kind.
    Owner, it's retirement time in the South of France.

    Is this possible?
    Intrigued but remain skeptical.
    A phenomenon I would have to inspect firsthand to believe.
    Seeing (firsthand) is believing.
    You could set up a booth and charge admission for viewing.
    You will need a twenty-four hour security detail.
    And an insurance agent...an international turtle cartel will want to kidnap this turtle.

    Would still like to see plastron.

    Interesting. The color blue is extremely rare in nature. Never seen anything like that.
