Artist's Description

Leopard Tortoise, Geochelone pardalis, is the largest tortoise in Africa and the fourth largest in the world. This chelonian is a grazing species of tortoise that favors semi arid, thorny to grassland habitats. Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya, East Africa.
This chelonian is a grazing species of tortoise that favors semi-arid, thorny to grassland habitats, although some leopard tortoises have been found in rainier areas. In both very hot and very cold weather they may dwell in abandoned fox, jackal, or anteater holes. Leopard tortoises do not dig other than to make nests in which to lay eggs. Not surprisingly, given its propensity for grassland habitats, it grazes extensively upon mixed grasses. It also favors the fruit and pads of the prickly pear cactus (Opuntia sp.), succulents and thistles. The African Leopard Tortoise typically lives 80 to 100 years.
