The sulcata tortoise (Geochelone sulcata), also known as the African spurred tortoise, is one of the largest tortoise species in the world. It has a brown to yellow shell and very thick, yellowish-brown skin, along with pointed scales—or spurs—on its legs. Native to arid and semiarid regions of Africa, these tortoises can adapt to various living conditions, which is one reason why they have become popular as a pet. If you can keep them happy and healthy, they can make for very fun, curious, and friendly companions!
One of our favorite animals on the ranch, these colorful Alpaca females give us much joy! Raised ONLY in herds, Alpacas require the company of one another, hence you cannot raise just one. They are the smallest of the camelid species, requiring very little to thrive (only 2% of their body weight daily). They live happily in herds, enjoy playing in water and running in pasture. They also use communal dung piles! They are easy to care for and a LOT of fun! DLT Ranch will keep a male available for breeding as desired. We have one female pair available to an approved home!

"White Park" can refer to a breed, a group of breeds, or to a unique color pattern found in breeds of cattle that originated centuries ago in the British Isles. There are several old heritage breeds that have this marking. This unique color is a somewhat dominant color pattern, and is used often in crossbreeding miniature cattle to develop new miniature composite breeds. The latest crossbreed is miniature Scottish Highland x British White that has been dubbed the "HighPark". All are beautiful, calm and friendly little cattle that make great pets while producing excellent beef.
