Where did this pic come from? Hard to tell if it is a galop! Tell us more and email me privately please. Rating: 5/5

Come to think of it- I strongly believe it is the albino sulcatta that is around- several in Daytona actually. Rating: 1/5

No I saw everyone of the albino spur's in person right after they were born. This is the real deal.

I highly doubt it. There are only but a handful of keepers successfully breeding these. All reputable and public in their successes. Not underground operators. This would be publicly acknowledged and celebrated. I ask again- what are the specifics on the animal. As hatchlings, sulcatta's do resemble galops just smaller in size and there is no relative size for reference in this pic!

I did not take the picture. It was sent from a friend of mine who is a big Turtle/Tortoise guy.

Looks photo shopped to me. Too much pink around the eyes.

Definitly not a spur, notice it has smooth forearms. I am reasonably certain the photo is real as represented. I have heard that albino galops were produced in the Galopagos Islands, but the zoologists/scientists didn't know how to take care of them and they died.

The vertabral scutes look like galop or aldabra, not sulcata. Rating: 5/5

that is a albino galop. it hatched out about 5 years ago at the darwin center in the galop islands. it was for sale to zoos for 1 million back then there has never been any up dated photos since then i dont believe its still alive. it is not a albino sulcata i have a pair of albinos looks nothing like them.
