I don't have the answer to your question i'm afraid but I have read that lots of people give butternut squash to their torts as a treat but I have tried several times and she doesn't seem the least bit interested?? Do you just chop it up small? Don't you find it's a bit hard for them?

Thanks
Jeanette

hi if you think ur tort or torts have worms then a poo sample is needed for the vet.

some people who have lots of torts worm them in the spring or late summer.i have started to do this but a lot of people dont think this is rite but its up to you.if its only one tort then i would just take a poo sample to the vet and if it has worms they will treat it.
