Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Cauliflower
  • Latin Name: Brassica oleracea (Botrytis Group)
  • Family Name: Brassicaceae/Cruciferae
 Like other members of the Brassicaceae family, Cauliflower contains goitrogens that can interfere with thyroid activity and could damage the liver and kidneys.  Therefore, although Cauliflower is not actually toxic, we would advise you not to feed it to your tortoise (and this advice applies to leaves of the plant as well as the actual head of Cauliflower).
