Leopard Tortoise

A very long-lived animal, the Leopard tortoise reaches sexual maturity between the ages of 12 and 15 years.

Captive Leopard tortoises, however, grow faster and may mature as young as 6 years of age. Leopard tortoises “court” by the male ramming the female. When mating, the male makes grunting vocalisations. After mating, the female lays a clutch consisting of 5 to 18 eggs. Leopard tortoises are the fifth largest species of tortoises in the world, getting to a weight of around 18 kilograms.

DID YOU KNOW? A tortoise can feel everything that touches it shell.
