    I have a friend that’s getting a sulcata tortoise. From what we have been told it’s a good bit older. My question is could a leopard tortoise that’s five years old and a Sulcata Live together in a large yard or where they fight?

    Two tortoises of any species is not a good mix. Three or four, yes, but two, no.

    Not a good idea. The sulcata will overcome power the leopard will get a lot bigger then the leopard and eventually could and probably will kill the leopard. Not a risk that should be taken.

    Species should never be mixed and tortoises should never be kept in pairs.
