Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Hops
  • Latin Name: Humulus lupulas
  • Family Name: Cannabaceae
There is little evidence to suggest that this plant is toxic to tortoises, but there is also little evidence to say that it can be freely fed.  We do know that hops are toxic to dogs, and we therefore would recommend that until further evidence comes to light you avoid feeding hops to your tortoise (although if some is accidentally nibbled there should be no cause for worry). 

Hops displays both male flowers (which are cream in colour) and female flowers -- the actual 'hops' (which are yellowish green or pale green).
