Hi All,
Last week when the weather was hot I put my two leopards out on the lawn for some sun,I noticed that they made for a patch of these plants and started eating,I thought that they might not be good for them and brought them away, they immediately made for them again,does anyone know if these are good for them.I cant find out on the web about these plants,can anyone help,I would really appreciate any info,they dont seem to have come to any harm
regards Maz :9

Hi Titch thanks for your reply the list of plants you sent me was very helpful, there some on there I didnt even know existed.:o What type of tort did you buy, and where did you get him or her from.I hope you will take Jades advice and take him-her to the vet for a check up with a poo sample. I am sure you will as you will want to do the very best for your tort.:) I hope you get as much pleasure out of keeping your little friend as we all do.:D
regards Maz

Buttercups are not toxic. Infact Murcus langford a top star breeder uses them.i wouldent feed to often just as part of a veryed diet. Also eny site that says add to basket is bad news. This is one of the worse ones:-(
