    I've tried to find them online and here, but with no luck. I'd like to see pictures of adult leopard tortoises, if at all possible.

    This is Tortillini and she is about 20 years old. She's here because her owner moved into an apartment, but she's not mine, I'm only taking care of her. She weighs about 25lbs and if she's growing anymore, I sure can't see it.

    The one in front being intimidated by Tortellini is Cincinnati. She came to me from Cincinnati and is still growing. I can see it year to year. She is younger than tortellini, but I don't know much of her history. She weighs about 20lbs.

    This is one I raised from an egg on pellets and so he's pyramided. He's about 4 years old now:

    Those are all I have in the Leopard department.

    Yup! Some tortoises float better than others. I've put every single one of my desert tortoises in deep water only to see them sink like stones. However, my leopards float.

    That's amazing. Do they actually enter the water on purpose, or do they only swim if they fall in?

    Seems to me I remember Steve saying that the tortoise enters the pond on its own, swims to the other side to eat the pond plants.

    I love seeing the pics of leopards more fully grown! So gorgeous with those patterns. What weight/length do they top out at?

    ETA: Look I got a second star!
