One of the oddest & rarest tortoises species ever seen, the African pancake tortoise actually has a soft plastron (bottom shell) which it contracts to fit into tight spaces. Full grown 5 – 6 inch adults can be just an inch thick. In time African pancake tortoises become quite friendly. One of the few species that love to climb, you can actually set up a 3 dimensional tank/pen for them.
Pancake Tortoises are only found in the rocky outcrops of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. Very few Pancakes are hatched by breeders – so move fast when ever one or two become available, as they make very personable little pets and can live for many decades.
COURTSHIP OR MATING BETWEEN PANCAKE TORTOISE
Compared to other species, the courtship does not seem to be particularly sophisticated in pancake tortoises. The male will chase down a female and then mount her. If unsuccessful in chasing down the female, the large male will attempt to mount one of the smaller males, and occasional scuffles will break out.
However, these are of a short duration and do not usually involve pursuit, biting or physical injury. I have never seen the smaller males attempt to mount a female in the presence of the large male, but they will do so when he is removed.
