Feed Sparingly
  • Common Name: Speedwell
  • Latin Name: Veronica spp., esp. Veronica arvensis
  • Family Name: Scrophulariaceae
Although Speedwell is quite high in tannins and also contains the glycoside aucubin which has been shown to be toxic when fed in large quantities to rats, the plant is generally considered to be of low toxicity to tortoises and so can safely be fed sparingly.
