These tortoise is readily eating a variety of lettuces, sweet potatoes, and assorted greens! These tortoises do quite well outdoors in Florida provided they have adequate shaded areas and are kept dry during rainy seasons.

Our captive bred Leopard tortoise hatchlings are at least one month old and actively eating.  Typical ages range between 3 and six months.  Given their young age, their sex remains undetermined and they must be kept in a protected indoor environment.   When properly cared for, they will provide a lifetime of enjoyment.

Description

Leopard Tortoise hatchlings (Pardalis Babcocki)

The Leopard tortoise is native to eastern and southern Africa where it lives in grasslands or other semi-arid areas. The Florida climate where we keep our breeders and their captive bred offspring, provides a good substitute environment for these tortoises. With their attractive appearance, typical full size of about 10-24 inches, and ease of care, these are a popular tortoise choice. When properly cared for, they will provide a lifetime of enjoyment.

Our Leopard breeders openly graze for much of their dietary needs. This is augmented with leafy greens, succulent plants, cactus, and fibrous fruits (e.g., apples). Adults also receive a small amount of protein (commercially packaged turtle food, broken down with water) to augment their predominantly vegetable diet. Hatchlings are fed similarly with very little or no protein.

    I just bought my leopard baby tortoise from "The Redfoot Ranch" this week and he is super active and eating well. This is the second hatchling I have bought from " The Redfoot Ranch" in the past month. Bill is very knowledgeable and is very helpful if you have any questions after your purchase for care of your tortoise. He and is wife are very personable and to me only sell very healthy, quality, reasonably priced tortoises. I am very happy with my two babies. Don't hesitate to buy anything from "The Redfoot Ranch" they are very passionate about what they do and want you to enjoy your reptile experience. K.B.
