Leopard Tortoise hatchling
Priced From $170.00
Three recent hatchlings – not available to ship before mid-June
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.
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.
NOTE: Must be 18+ years old to order. Please check your state and local laws concerning captive species before ordering. Turtles and tortoises under 4 inches are sold for scientific, educational, and exhibition purposes only.
