Millet (Proso Millet, Common Millet, Hog Millet, White Millet)

 Safe to Feed
  • Common Name: Millet (Proso Millet, Common Millet, Hog Millet, White Millet)
  • Latin Name: Panicum miliaceum
  • Family Name: Poaceae/Gramineae
Millet grass is fine for grazing species of tortoises like Leopards and Sulcatas, and other species might enjoy it as well.  As this type of Millet is commonly used in wild bird seed mixes, it is often seen sprouting underneath garden bird feeders.  Never feed the seeds though, as they are too high in protein.

Do not confuse with Pearl Millet (Pennisetum glaucum), which is widely grown as a food crop in various parts of the world.
