Red, the Leopard Tortoise

Red is a male African Leopard Tortoise, named by his rescuer because he had red paint all over his shell. Sometimes people do stupid things to defenseless creatures. Red likes to graze on the grass in his outdoor pen.


ETR’s Indian Tortoises

Our lovely Indian Star Tortoises (Geochelone elegans) include one female and two males. Several years ago, the female was very sick and had a tube inserted into her stomach so I could administer antibiotics and liquids. I included a couple of pictures of her when she was sick.

Introducing our African tortoises

ETR has two Leopard tortoises (Geochelone pardalis), which are native to Africa. One of our Leopards is an adult male, while the other is an unsexed juvenile.
