Richard Fife of Riparian Farms developed and produced the First and Original Ivory Tortoise in 2000. In May of 2018 Balland's Tortoise Ranch had the opportunity to purchase Richard's original line of breeding stock-an opportunity that couldn't be passed up!
Ivory Tortoises are a dark eyed form of albino African Spurred Tortoise called a Tyrosine Positive albino. They are identical in size and care as other African Spurred Tortoises and because they have dark pigment in their eyes they can safely be put outside in the sun without worry of damaging their eyes. This is a fantastically beautiful tortoise.
