What are leopard tortoises relatives?
I've heard Russian tortoises stay pretty small, but I don't think they are the smallest. It really depends on the genes. Leopard tortoises are the 5th largest tortoises in the world but one of mine is still baby sized after a few years. We think that's because she was bred more for show than for being large and healthy.
I believe leopard tortoises are somewhat similar, although the coloring is much different and leopard tortoises are the 5th largest tortoises in the world. Actually, none, sorry. Desert Tortoises are all too often carriers of Mycoplasma Agassizii and other tortoise species have no built in defense against that. They are also very sensitive and susceptible to other tortoise species specific disease/parasitic issues and mixing of different species of tortoises is not recommended for just this…
Well, it depends on the type of tortoise you have. If you have a sulcata or leopard tortoise they can live in your backyard if you have a lot of room for them to roam. If you have a tropical tortoise like a red-footed tortoises you would need to put him either in a big tropical cage or in a tropical backyard.
tortoises do get along but they are slightly Territorial my tortoises fought for a bit but then when the winner is proved dominant (in charge) they should get along, different tortoises species can mix to but it is better to get two species at the same time as they will fight much more to prove who is dominant.
