Leopard Tortoise behavior

The Leopard Tortoise is one of the largest and most personable tortoises.

Being from Africa, the Leopard Tortoise does best in warm climates. They are herbivores that spend much of their waking hours grazing on grasses and succulents. They live in dry habitats with thorny and grassy vegetation. The Leopard Tortoise can sometimes be found in damper regions. In very hot or cold weather, the Leopard Tortoise retreats to burrows that were dug by fox, antbears, or jackals. The Leopard Tortoise's diet consists mainly of what it can find grazing and therefore it feeds mostly on grasses. They will also eat cactus and cactus fruit, when it is available.
