Tortius Maximus my $500.00 African Leopard Tortoise

African leopard tortoises (Geochelone pardalis) Just thought Id show him off. The reason why he cost me a extra few is because #1 they are hard to find in my area. #2 the marking on his parents was extremely beautiful just check out his ALIEN Head. He might be a blondie.....(a diff variation in coloration for leopard tortoises)

Nice...although he looks a bit dark to be a blonde. Leopards hard to find anywhere in Cali? I always thought that Cali, like Arizona, was rife with leopards, even in rescues.

No way in my area they are hard to find (Socal), well not hard hard but difficult at times and even when you do they are expensive but most of the breeders are over on this side (north Calif & ariz).. But the blondie part yeah Im hopin ...hes trying ...so its good to be skeptical. Maybe hes just waiting for a time to come out of his shell GET IT!!! lol

Some people pay thousands of dollars for a pure bred dog.
What's wrong with spending 500 bucks on a tortoise?

Besides, he sure is a Cutiepie
