I'm looking to learn more about the big leopard tortoises, the South African Pardalis Pardalis species. They are obviously much harder to find than the Pardalis Babcocki species. They grow bigger is about all I can tell, but not clear if they have other differences or requirements other than size.

I see occasional classifieds for them, but they are pretty far and few between compared to the more common Babcocki. Not clear whether they are harder to breed, so was wondering why they are less common. Haven't seen any info on breeders who specialize in the larger species. Is anyone familiar enough with them to tell me more about them or whether there are breeders who could help explain if there are differences in breeding, feeding, etc.? Or whether there are any specialized breeders at all?

Anything anyone could share would be appreciated.
