hi Alicia they look like pardalis babcocki the same as Bobby the way to tell for sure is from the hatchlings do you have a picture of Tiny Willys carapace alhtough im sure i remember he was the same as Bobby.

They are all Stigmochelys pardalis babcocki, Alicia

The 2 subspecies can live together, but why would you want to chance cross breeding as S.p.pardalis is relatively rare in captivity.

thank you for your help danny and terry

danny i was wondering about the subspecies as i just didnt know if subspecies could live to gether lol, ive never had more than 1 tort living on its own so never really had to know about it

this may be a silly question but what would you end up with if you cross bread p.pardalis and p. babcocki

a p. parcocki?
