We aim to provide you with a resource for safe practice and to try to reduce some of the confusion that exists at present concerning the feeding of tortoises, as well as giving a general understanding of the principles of providing a varied and nutritious diet.
We have received a cheque for a booklet from you, but there was no address included so if you could please contact us with your address we will send the booklet out to you as soon as we can”.

Please note that if an entry states that a plant is safe to feed to tortoises, or can be fed in moderation, that it applies to all parts of the plant (leaves, flowers, roots, bark, etc.), and if some parts are safe but others are not, we list the parts that are not safe.
We have plant Icons on the main tips section of each plant entry so you can determine whether to feed the whole plant, just the flower or the leaf only.

Clicking on smaller images in the database will enlarge the photos to provide you with more detail.

Then register or log in to the TTT website forum and post your pictures where our plant experts are waiting to help.
Or email your picture to email@example.com
