Most (if not all) members of the Milkweed family contain alkaloids and cardiac glycosides that are toxic to livestock and often avoided. Milkweeds should not be planted in the tortoise enclosure, and any plants growing there need to be removed.
esp. Common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca)
Butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa)
