Genetic Information

Double Het (Heterozygous) hatchlings come about when you breed a visual Albino Sulcata to a visual Ivory Sulcata. Their offspring are 100% Het for Ivory and 100% Het for Albino, hence "Double Het". Het stands for heterozygous essentially meaning they are carriers of a recessive gene, in this case both Ivory and Albino. Since they carry both the Ivory gene and the Albino gene they are the only tortoises in the world able to produce both Ivory and Albino offspring. What's even more unique is 1/16 of their offspring when bred back to each other will be a brand new type (morph) of Sulcata that has never existed before which to say the least is extremely exciting and valuable! 

Breeding Possibilities

Ivory to Double Het = Half visual Ivory (which are also 50% Het for Albino), and the other half 100% Het for Ivory and 50% Het for Albino

Albino to Double Het = Half visual Albino (which are also 50% Het for Ivory), and the other half 100% Het for Albino and 50% Het for Ivory


But here is where things get interesting...


Double Het to Double Het = (16 possibilities) Along with being able to produce BOTH Ivory and Albino hatchlings, 1/16 babies will be a brand new double visual morph that has never been produced before!

Physical Appearance

Their overall appearance isn't far off from a normal Sulcata but they do have visually lighter shells, lighter growth lines, and golden heads.
