Mahonia (Oregon Grape)

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Mahonia (Oregon Grape)
  • Latin Name: Mahonia spp.
  • Family Name: Berberidaceae
Mahonia contains burberine, which imparts a bitter taste, so it is not likely that tortoises will like this plant.  It also contains potentially toxic alkaloids in the leaves, stems, and berries, so it would be best to avoid offering this plant as part of the tortoise's diet.
