I wanted to share with you some info that i read on a french website on tortoises and about fresh nettles.


Basically nettles cut and given after about 4 hours they were cut are very nutritious for tortoises. I feed my babies with some regularly. I cut some leaves and leave them in the enclosure in the morning, then it is up to the torts to choose when they want to have a bite. I noticed they eat them until the last bit even though they have other favorite leaves and flowers available to them. So it is not like they are starving and are forced to eat the nettles only.


I am sure some torts do and some don't enjoy nettles, but i wanted to share this with you.
