PANCAKE TORTOISE FOR SALE
Some of the rarest baby tortoises for sale are called pancake tortoises. All of our African pancake tortoises were born here at the tortoise farm, where they were raised from birth. Most species of baby tortoises are a little bit cheaper than African pancake tortoises for sale online.
At the tortoise farm, all of the baby tortoises for sale, including the pancake tortoises, are kept at 75% humidity. As temperatures go down, humidity should also go down. Adult pancake tortoises do well in environments with about 45% humidity. When grown up in the right amount of humidity, adult pancake tortoises should have smooth shells. In the wild, pancake tortoise for sale grind their shells into rock cracks where they hide from birds that want to eat them. This keeps their shells very smooth.
The temperature should be between 85 and 95 degrees for pancake tortoises. We keep the average temperature for baby African pancake tortoises around 88 degrees. Adult tortoises need temperatures that are very close to those of hatchlings, but not exactly the same. Meaning the hot spot and cold spots should be further apart for adults who need to thermoregulate even more so than pancake tortoise hatchlings for sale.
There are many different things that can make up a pancake tortoise’s home. The important thing is to get the temperature and humidity just right. Also, giving them the best place to live and places to hide, such as caves. Remember that Pancake tortoises for sale are very good at climbing.
