Opuntia is a large genus, ranging from tree specimans to ground cover, all of which are safe (both pads and fruit).   In large quantities Opuntia can have a laxative effect, so don't overfeed.  Opuntia ficus indica is one of the most popular varieties for tortoises, as it has fewer spines and glochids than some of the others. yumiat.net hayamix.com alyoum9
