Hi Simon,

The 'trouble' with wild caught torts is that they've had such a good natural diet in the wild, that some of the food we offer they just havent seen or tasted before. Try to stay as natural as possible, as this time of year you should be feeding your tort for free, so many dandelions, plantains, sowthistle etc. Have you checked out the weed guide on www.tortoises.net ?
There are loads of flowers you could tempt him with :- Honeysuckle, mimulus, petunia, lavatera, bizzie lizzies, fuschia, dandelions, nasturtiums..........the opuntia cactus is very well liked too
Hope this helps
(try and avoid supermarket salads whereever possible, they dont have a high nutritional value)
