Leopard Tortoise

The leopard tortoise has beautiful markings on their shell of which no two are identical, just like the human fingerprint.

They are the third largest tortoise in the world and have been known to reach a shell of 28 inches long and a weight of 120 pounds (54 kgs).

They are widely spread across most of the drier areas of Africa. We saw these in the Kruger National Park.
