LEOPARD X SULCATA TORTOISE

There are a couple of breeders in the US producing these. Whether they're fertile or not is yet to be seen. Pretty controversial here.

Re: exporting leopard tortoises

Would it be legal to sell a clutch of eggs and ship to the US? There is a limited gene pool of SA leopards here, and we cannot import leopards, sulcatas, or hingebacks because of possible ticks.

Re: LEOPARD TORTOISE INCUBATION

I have had minimal success incubating them. I just leave them in the ground and year later they hatch. Where in the US are you? They can handle rather extreme weather conditions. I'm in northern Ohio. The weather can be severe with prolonged periods below freezing. They are indoors for 1/2 of the y...

LEOPARD TORTOISE INCUBATION

My young male leopard tortoise is just starting to breed my big female. I'm in the US, and can't incubate naturally. Does anyone have any tips for me? Such as diapause time and temps, incubation temp and humidity?

Re: Tortois ID

Both are leopards to me they look like Stigmochelys pardalis babcocki, not S. African pardalis pardalis. Pyramiding shells, larger one looks like it has a little metabolic bone disease. Extra scute on smaller one is usually found in too warm incubation temps. A little small to sex, but I would say t...

Re: EASTERN BOX TURTLES

I ended up with 11 hatchlings last year. So far this year, I have 4, and 8 in the incubator. This is my new male. He's pretty exceptional.

Re: IT WON'T KILL YA, BUT...

I would not mind raising one of these captive bred hatchlings. They are so cute and they grow into these dinosour looking animal. Simply awesome. The hatchlings are very personable, and I have seen very tame large adults. This one was VERY bitey, in the second pic, he's in a typical agressive stanc...
