Tortoises need Grass, Flowers, Weeds, and Hay before they need Fruit and Vegetables

Hay is an ideal component of grassland tortoise nutrition due to its similarity to commonly found forage material in the tortoises’ natural habitat. It is recommended to feed most grassland tortoises a diet high in fiber and full of nutrient-rich grasses and hays with a smaller portion of dark, leafy greens and vegetables added in for variety.
