Maize (Corn)

 Safe to Feed
  • Common Name: Maize (Corn)
  • Latin Name: Zea mays
  • Family Name: Poaceae/Gramineae
Maize (the plant from which we get Corn on the Cob) is actually a grass, and it is safe to feed the leaves to your tortoise, but do not feed the ears of corn as they are too high in phosphorus and protein.

See Corn on the Cob.
