Leopard Tortoise by Stan Mastrantonis via Tumblr
I found this little cutie while I was patrolling the Bulele Nature Reserve (part of The Greater Kruger Park). Named for his markings, he’s just a wee little guy now, but Leopard Tortoise’s can grow to be 460 mm (18 inches). You never know what you’re going to find on patrol!
