Leopard Tortoise

The leopard tortoise is personally one of my favorite tortoises. I obtained my first leopard tortoise in 1973 and have been breeding them for over 25 years. They are a moderately large tortoise (14-inches to 18-inches) but are not too big for most people to handle. They have beautifully marked high domed, shells. They can be housed inside in a large tortoise pen during the winter and put outside on warm summer days
