Ivory sulcata tortoises (2019)

Individual 2019 ivories:

$650 to $750 each with shipping included

Individual 2019 100% hets for ivory:

$150 each with shipping included

To purchase 2019 ivories and/or ivory hets, please email Josh at jtrux1 at gmail dot com or send a message via the Tortoise Morphs page on Facebook to get the conversation started. He will return messages as soon as he can get to them.

Fife line ivory sulcatas. The 2019 ivories and hets are/were feeding on a wide variety of provided fare and live indoors (they are soaked daily as well). The 2019s come from a breeding collaboration - of which I am a principal partner/owner.

Any buyer is expected to have done his/her research prior to making contact, as it shows intellectual investment in the well-being of the animal(s).


Shipping and LAG:

I ship via Reptile Express (which utilizes Fed-Ex). If there is adverse weather involved, we will wait for a safer shipping window as warranted. Contact me at nickolasanastasiou at yahoo dot com if you are interested in purchasing. I offer a live arrival guarantee if you are present to receive. If there is a DOA situation, I expect multiple hi-res photos adequately displaying the condition within an hour of receipt (and I may require the corpse/corpses to be sent back to me; you will be compensated for this if it happens). If there is a discrepancy in description, I expect to be made aware of it within the day it is received (in which case, I will issue you a full refund upon safe return of the animal/animals to me). Animals under 4" scl are not sold as pets. Contiguous 48 only (I actually can ship to HI or AK, but there may be additional costs involved that the buyer would have to cover).

Shipping is about $50 most of the time. Sometimes I save two bucks and sometimes I lose ten over the included number, so $50 is what I settle at for smaller animals. I suppose I could meet up with someone closer and chop the shipping off, but it would have to be a convenient location for me and I am ONLY chopping the shipping off for a meet-up. The distance you traverse has zero bearing on this cost reduction. Larger animals cost a heap more to ship, so that incorporated cost is steeper.


Email me at nickolasanastasiou at yahoo dot com if you are interested in purchasing. I am usually busy between work, perhaps school, care for my menagerie, more work, family stuff, and yet more work, so email works best for me. Deal discussions are to be conducted through email. Since I use Fauna private messages for site-related communications, I am unlikely to respond to PMs about animals in my ads. It also implies the person either did not read or did not care about what was written.


All non-local sale prices have shipping cost, packaging, and any miscellaneous fees/costs built in for buyer convenience except where otherwise indicated (usually for much larger individuals). What you see is what you get. Payment plans are no longer accepted. If only a portion of the total due is sent to me and I have not explicitly agreed to that, I reserve the right to refund you and refuse sale. If an offer is made and I accept it with a time frame involved for payment, a lapse of said time frame without any delivery of payment typically means the agreement has been invalidated (for example, if you say you are going to pay me [amount] on [date] and I agree to that, the deal is basically void if [date] passes and payment has not been sent) unless we both agree to the renegotiation of the payment window and there are no communication deficits.


Unsexed animals, probable sexes, and temp-sexed animals have no associated guarantees as to a specific sex. A probable male/female appears to be so at the time, but has not necessarily reached full maturity, so there is room for error. A TSF or TSM label is subject to the performance of accurate TSD and that is a shift of probability in favor of a particular sex (it often works out, but occasionally does not; such is the chance we all take). A guaranteed sex is, as stated, guaranteed. If an animal of guaranteed sex ends up revealing itself to be not of the purchased and explicitly declared sex (with sufficient evidence sent to me) down the road, it can be returned to me in a healthy state for a full refund (the general practice) or, if you are attached emotionally, we may be able to do a partial refund based on current market prices while you retain the animal.


I prefer sales to trades in almost all cases. Not seeking trades at this time, but see above for some possible partial trade options that came to mind.


Things we are not: a charity, a rescue, or a home for wayward tortoises that failed to make it big by venturing out West only to end up starring in tortoise mating documentaries.

I will include some photos of a 2018 holdback we produced, too. It hatched from the smallest egg of the year in July and we decided to keep it back as a pet and possible future breeder because it stole our hearts with its huge personality in a tiny (at the time) body. This holdback is not for sale, as it has been returned to our breeding colony as a future breeder after being kept with me for growth purposes, but it gives you an idea of what our animals can do with solid care.

The same colony producing our 2019s produced this one. Again, this 2018 holdback is not for sale.

Here are some of the adults in the colony. They are not for sale, but these will be the parents of the 2019 ivories and 2019 het for ivories. They are strong animals that produce strong babies. Included is a photo of the sire after he has been sprayed down to get grime off of him, as it shows you how our ivories look as adults in terms of coloration.

Remember that sulcatas grow large and can dig large burrows. They need warmth all year and should not be allowed to get too cold outside of brief excursions. Consider the commitment to their care before deciding to buy any sulcata.

The current set of 2019 ivory hatchlings has sold out, I believe.

The next set of 2019 ivory hatchlings should be hatching in June.

Some small number of 2019 100% het for ivory hatchlings might still remain.

Again, inquiry should be made via email to Josh Hinshaw, my project partner, at jtrux1 at gmail dot com.
