Hybrid Giant South African Leopard Tortoise
These AMAZING hybrids are 75% Giant South African Leopard, 25% Pardalis Babcocki East African leopard tortoise. (One of their parents is 50% Regular East African Leopard tortoise, 50% Giant South African leopard tortoise, and the other parent is 100% Pardalis Pardalis Giant South African).
We have been selling out of these awesome hybrid giants almost as fast as they hatch! We have some beautiful, active and healthy captive bred hybrid baby giant South African leopard tortoise for sale (Aprox 2-2.25″). We do recommend the 6-month-old well started hybrid giant leopard tortoise babies (available here) over the fragile fresh hatchlings for those with less experience as they’re even more active and easier to care for then the hatchling stage.
Pardalis Pardalis hybrids for sale
Pardalis Pardalis, the South African Giant Leopard Tortoise, Pardalis pardalis is a rarely seen, very large growing subspecies of the common Leopard Tortoise (pardalis babcocki) from the extreme southern portion of the Leopard Tortoise range into Namibia and South Africa. The“giant”of the Leopard Tortoises, reaching lengths of 14-22 inches on average at 40-65lbs, Giant South African Leopard Tortoises are easily distinguished by their tell tale spotting in the center of their shell, having “double or triple dots” rather than single or no dots like a standard leopard tortoise (pardalis babcocki).
Giant South African leopard tortoise Size
We are seeing growth rates of 16-18″ with the hybrids, so they are definitely larger than the traditional east African leopard tortoise, but not as large as the 100% pure Giant South Africans. They do exhibit double dots on scutes like pure Pardalis Pardalis but not always and not on every scute.
The hybrid giants are not only bigger, they are known for being are a bit more outgoing and personable than a normal leopard and also have a marbled spotted pattern on their head and body, setting them apart from the traditional sub species. They do well on Mazuri tortoise chow, opuntia cactus and a variety of mixed greens and grasses with a dusting of calcium supplement all available at the turtle store.
