Common Name: Figwort (Common Figwort, Water Figwort)
Latin Name:Scrophularia spp.
Family Name: Scrohulariaceae
Figworts contain saponins (which in high concentrations are toxic to reptiles) plus various alkaloids, and the semi-aquatic Water Figwort (Schrophularia aquatica) is said to contain cardiac glycosides, so this genus is one to avoid giving to your tortoise. The sepals of the Water Figwort have a wide white border and the leaves are oval with blunt tips and rounded leaves.
