The material on The Tortoise Table website is meant for information purposes only.  While every effort and care have been taken in preparing the content of this site, and to ensure that it is correct, there may be plants that are not listed here that are toxic so please do not assume that because they are not within these pages they are safe for your tortoise.

We strongly recommend the following precautions when trying anything new:

  • Make sure you have identified the plant correctly. 
  • Offer only small quantities of anything new in your tortoise's diet.  If there are no side effects increase the quantity in the next week.
  • Be aware that many plants absorb chemicals and other properties that might be present in the soil (for example, fertilisers and insecticides) and that this could make an otherwise good plant unsuitable for your tortoise.
Any information provided on The Tortoise Table website is not meant to be a substitute for medical advice, and if you suspect that your tortoise has had an adverse reaction to any food, veterinary advice should be sought immediately.

If you notice any errors, inaccuracies or omissions in any of the material on this website please notify us by email using our contact form.  We welcome any suggestions for improvement to and enhancement of the site.
