Sulcata, Leopard & African Tortoises

Tortoises (Testudinidae) are a family of land-dwelling reptiles that like their aquatic cousins, the turtles, are shielded from predators by a shell . The tortoise has both an endoskeleton and an exoskeleton and can vary in size from a few inches to 4 feet.

Generally reclusive animals, tortoises often have lifespans comparable with those of human beings, with some individuals recorded to have lived more than 150 years. Tortoises are primarily herbivores, feeding on grazing grasses, weeds, leafy greens, flowers, and some fruits, although certain species occasionally consume worms or insects.
