These are a large species of tortoise found throughout southern Africa.  They need a high basking temperature and a good quality UVB light source.  They inhabit arid scrub grassland and thrive on a diet of grasses, hays and weeds.  Shop bought salads and vegetables are too moist and have too high a protein content to be used as more than an occasional treat.  As with other tortoise species they are prone to calcium deficiency which causes shell deformities if they are fed a diet to rich in protein.
