You did not give your name but I respect your comments. I regret not putting down the eyeless phayrei. It will never be bred. But it does get personal care. I did learn that after birth it did not feed when I kept it alone because of its deformity. When kept with its sibblings it learned to eat by hearing the others and finding them by sent. It is only about a year behind its sibblings after five years. I was just morbidly curious. I dont know of anything else I will learn from it other than not to keep one alive again. I did call the late Dr.B.bonner DVM of the case to help me understand how or why this happened in case it was environmental,like from pollution, pestacides ect. She said it was not and that it was a 1 in 10,000 chanch for a lot of animals.(A lot of Burmese Pythons had it in the early nindy's) So maybe I also learned what it was not. The tortoise did have the tear duct and would have a droplett or tear coming from a pore in the skin. Maybe I should have given it to UF for reserch as I did some Green Iguanas one time. As far as the one with the curved spine, I was joking about it walking in circles. I should have added the LOL. I will never sell it or breed it. It will grow up here with Quazzy and be a pet. Nothing leaves here for sale that is not perfect. Thanks for your thoughful responce and kind words. Vic.........pic Perfect phayrei
