The leopard tortoise or mountain tortoise is the second largest tortoise in the world, and it has beautiful markings. The leopard tortoise originates from the African Savannah regions, where it lives in dry, arid areas and feeds on various vegetation.

There are two leopard tortoise genera: Stigmochelys pardalis and Psammobates pardalis. Leopard tortoises are high-maintenance pets because they need ample living spaces, varied diets, and specific conditions.

Use a humidity gauge or hygrometer to measure the enclosure humidity. Spray the substrate with water at night for higher humidity.Leopard tortoises shed skin from the head, tail, and limbs. Shedding is normal and healthy if the enclosure matches the natural habitat. Leopard tortoises also shed their shells as they grow. Individual scutes shed and grow back. The shell will get harder, fade in color, and start peeling. The right temperature and humidity helps tortoises shed healthily. Increase the humidity in the enclosure during shedding.Leopard tortoises hibernate in winter. They dig into the ground, under shrubs, rocks, or logs, and only the shell is visible.Substrate and DecorationUse a sand-soil substrate mixture for indoor leopard tortoises. Add Bermuda grass, hay, potting soil, peat moss, or newspaper substrates for the tortoise to feed on, and to discourage the tortoise from ingesting sand. Add a flat basking rock under the basking light.

There are several things to consider before acquiring a pet tortoise. This article focuses on the leopard tortoise, but truly, this advice applies to any tort, turtle or tyrannosaur you're considering adopting. Run your finger down the checklist below, and if any items make you uncomfortable, reconsider or make the necessary adjustments.

Leopards love to nest. As you get to know your pet, or if you have owned this species before, you'll understand that they choose certain spots to sleep in. They appreciate parking off in corners and in artificial homes. Outdoor tortoises often make a shallow hollow in the ground and return there every night. Make sure your baby has an accessible shelter, with a wide opening and deep interior.

As a cold-blooded creature, it needs warmth to get going. Kept away from drafts and cold places, room temperature is fine. But Junior's health depends on sunlight. Add a shade shelter to provide the tortoise with the option to remove itself from the heat. However, when this young, the owner should supervise sunbathing or lamp time. Too much heat on such a small body can be detrimental. Some keepers choose to use heat lamps instead but before you do, research the correct temperature and exposure time. Overall, sunlight is preferable.

When a person puts a tortoise up for sale, they fall into two categories: breeders, or owners who no longer want their pet. Choose a reputable keeper with links to the reptile community and who shows some expertise. Be wary of classifieds, even if the person sends plenty of pretty pictures showing their available youngsters. Many, if not most, are scams. In the pet industry, online scam artists aim to fleece anyone interested in a purebred puppy, kitten or in this case, a baby tortoise.

The main concern at this stage is to give your new pet a smooth traveling experience. Tortoises get sick from too much stress. Alone, a bumpy ride won't trigger health issues but the transition will be a lot for the tortoise to assimilate. It's used to another environment, feeding schedule and stimuli. Provide the most stress-free ride home, even if it means driving slower than usual. Make sure the car is not too hot and that young passengers don't handle it. Question the previous owner about diet, likes and dislikes, and try to replicate it. For example, if the tortoise had a favorite bathing rock, it will help to provide your pet with a new one.

To stay on the safe side, let a vet examine your baby tortoise. However, let the critter settle into its new home before booking the appointment. The exception is illness, and then a vet visit is critical. Unfortunately, by the time a tortoise shows symptoms, it is already quite sick. An ill reptile can die very quickly without expert treatment. Always choose a vet that is qualified in treating reptiles. Not all of them are specialists.

Your baby tortoise will probably treat the water bowl like a pool (Leopards love water). This is fine, except for the inevitable wet mess, as a dry environment is best for a tortoise. Consistent moisture can cause shell and even respiratory problems. Normally, a tort will dry all by itself but it helps to also dry the enclosure's surface after a water spill.

To care for me, your baby Leopard tortoise, remember the basics: I like a stress-free environment, correct temperature, hydration and proper feeding. Overall, I'm easy to care for once I realize you are my keeper and I'm settled into my routine!

The leopard tortoise (Stigmochelys pardalis ) is a large and attractively marked tortoise found in the savannas of eastern and southern Africa, from Sudan to the southern Cape. It is the only extant member of the genus Stigmochelys, although in the past, it was commonly placed in Geochelone. This tortoise is a grazing species that favors semiarid, thorny to grassland habitats. In both very hot and very cold weather, it may dwell in abandoned fox, jackal, or aardvark holes. The leopard tortoise does not dig other than to make nests in which to lay eggs. Given its propensity for grassland habitats, it grazes extensively upon mixed grasses. It also favors succulents and thistles.

The Leopard tortoise is a big beautiful tortoise and is the fourth largest out of the tortoise family. Their shell pattern is attractive and also provides perfect camouflage in its home range. These animals are shy and they withdraw into the comfort of their shell when they sense any form of disturbance or danger.

Leopard tortoises inhabit the savannas of Southern and Eastern Africa, from Ethiopia to Sudan and from Natal to southern Angola, as well as South Africa and part of southwestern Africa. The hot, dry savannas have sparse vegetation, and the tortoises favor semi-arid to grassland areas, characteristic of grazing species. They are often seen in shady areas or resting underneath brushy plants to escape the immense heat. Some of them, however, inhabit rainy areas. 041b061a72
