More about the pancake tortoise: African Pancake Tortoise is a small, flat tortoise with a flexible shell. Pancake tortoises shells have openings between these bony plates, making it much lighter and not as rigid as in other tortoises, by design. Pancake tortoises have a flexible bridge (that is used for connecting the plastron and carapace together). Because of this, it allows the pancake to be flattened slightly. Because of this feature, it helps enables the pancake tortoise to seek shelter in very small areas. Normally you will find a pancake hiding in rock crevices. Individuals are brown, with radiating yellow markings on the shell.
The lighter, flexible shell does not provide as much protection as a typical tortoise shell, so they spend much of their time among rocks and in crevices for protection. Be sure that you buy your pancake tortoise for sale from a reputable pancake tortoise breeder. Looking for another tortoise for sale?
