"The care of a Reptile whether it be a Tortoise, Snake, Iguana, etc. requires different care than Wild animals which are Free to Roam and Pets which are enclosed as Captive hatchlings unfamiliar with the Wild or the environment of the Wild. So yes. It is required to use special treatment for PETS and Not Wild animals. God takes care of the animals in the Wild. As ambassadors of a particular species we are to take care of PETS. So in reply...Yes. Absolutely you should rub any skin conditioners or shell conditioners on a Leopard Tortoise which is Captive. This procedure is similar to spraying down an elephant at the Zoo. One of the Zoo Keeper's favorite jobs I might add. The Elephants ENJOY it also. Good Question though. But Yes certainly you do different things to Captive animals than Wild animals. I hope that answered your question. Stay Well, God Bless, Doug Wolkow."
