African Pancake Tortoises are some of the coolest tortoises for sale in the world! Naturally found in Tanzania and Kenya, these rare and beautiful our african pancake tortoise for sale are extremely well marked and have vibrant, vivid colors. Pancake tortoises are the “flattest” of all tortoises, stay relatively small and are very easy to care for. While very rare, the captive bred baby african pancake tortoise for sale is one of our personal favorites of all species of tortoise. The African Pancake Tortoise is a small, flat tortoise with a flexible shell. The pancake’s shell has openings between the bony plates, making it much lighter and not as rigid as in other tortoises, and has a flexible bridge (connecting the plastron and carapace) to allow it to be flattened slightly as the pancake tortoise seeks shelter in rock crevices. Individuals are brown, with radiating yellow markings on the shell. The lighter, flexible shell does not provide as much protection as a typical tortoise shell, so they spend much of their time among rocks and in crevices for protection. Be sure that you buy your pancake tortoise for sale from a reputable pancake tortoise breeder.
