True to their name, pancake tortoises are a very flat tortoise, designed to fit into the narrow crevices that they live in naturally. With a small adult size, these pretty tortoises have radiating patterns on their shells, much like star tortoises. Their shells are very soft for a tortoise, and quite flexible when held. While this helps them fit into narrow cracks in the rock, it leaves them vulnerable to predators that would have problems trying to eat harder-shelled tortoises.
