    One of the ..." one of a kind" Hypos hatched here at the Cove' ....there have been 2 others with this purplish/grey skin tone and lack of your normal coloring. To say the least a very neat looking combo ...even better in person;) as the flash from the camera washes out the purple and makes it look more grey;
    A very personable tort and one of the largest and fastest growing of all the Hypo's hatched at the Cove' in 2013.

    There were 2 special eggs .....the first one to hatch had a little bit more color on it's head . The second one "purple man" was mind blowing to say the least. Not bad for somebody who doesn't know anything eh?
