Leopard Tortoise General Care

This page is about the general care of the Leopard Tortoise. This is an African species that does not hibernate so special care is needed if kept outdoors in the wintertime.  Floor heaters such as the Stanfield Reptile Heating Pad (Stanfield Reptile Heater Page) are excellent and is what Dr. Bart uses in his outdoor enclosure.  Make sure you get the thermostat with it as well! Please see the other articles on tortoise care on our site but entering ‘tortoise’ in the search window at the upper right of our main page.
