The sign on Leopard Tortoise enclosure read: "These beautiful tortoises are named for the spotted pattern on their shells. This colorful pattern helps you tortoises to blend in with their African grassland habitats. Older tortoises can reach a weight of over 100 pounds and therefore need no protection from predators."
