The leopard tortoise is probably the most colourful among the tortoises of large size. It’s a turtle that can reach a noticeable length: the adults can come to and exceed 60 cm, with a weight of over 36 kg.
This turtle has a solitary temperament and is docile and quiet, but it becomes aggressive during the mating season, when the male tends to chase after the female and to woo her biting and shoving.
During the day it is very active, except during the hottest hours, when it searches for shade to rest. Average life expectancy is around 75 years.
