These captive bred Leopard tortoises are absolutely stunning. They look like pardalis pardalis, but they are a mix of pardalis babcocki and pardalis pardalis. They mostly have two dots on all their scutes, with light tan skin and gorgeous black speckled dots.
You get the best of both worlds, the size of a pardalis babcocki, but similar carapace look of a giant south African leopard (pardalis pardalis). How can you tell you’re not getting a giant south African leopard? You have to trust the breeder.
