The leopard tortoise is a large and attractively marked tortoise found in the savannas of eastern and southern Africa. This tortoise is a grazing species that favors semi-arid, thorny to grassland habitats. In both very hot and very cold weather, they may dwell in abandoned holes. Leopard tortoises do not dig other than to make nests in which to lay eggs. Given its propensity for grassland habitats, it grazes extensively upon mixed grasses. It also favors succulents and thistles.
