:I got a baby leopard tortoise and he seems very healthy. . I would greatly appreciate a list of the best foods to feed him or a care sheet for them or a website with that info.

Young leopards should be fed as natural a diet as possible - in with your Romaine lettuce mix in leafy greens (dandelions, clover, endive, grape leaves, mulberry leaves etc.) Avoid fruit as they do not digest it well.

We have two care sheets on the WCT site for leopard tortoises The dirtect links are: http://www.chelonia.org/Articles/pardaliscare.htm
and
http://www.chelonia.org/Articles/Mistypardaliscare.htm

Or you can go to the link below and click on care sheets to access these and about 50 others.


In the photo hatchlings of both subspecies are pictured babcocki on left - pardalis on right
