Just make sure that he eats plenty of weeds and try and stop the fruit completely (it's like giving to sweets to a child instead of a meal) and preferably the cucumber too. it has no nutritional value. He looks a lovely tort, there are some great character shots there to treasure, your table looks good too. :rolleyes:

Hi Steve, Mel & Harry,
Be sure to use the links we provided you with for the correct diet. These will give all the information you need to know about what 'Harry' should be eating.
Best of luck. ;)
Freddy :)

Hi guys, feeding grapes and other fruits will upset torties intestinal flora plenty of lovely weeds around to use as treats, much better for our little guys. :)

Thanks everyone for your comments I have cut out all fruit be to be honest he was only have a little anyway. Harry has taken a liking to his plants I put in his table just need to have a good look around for different weeds as I don't want him to get bored of what he is having at the moment. Will have a look at the plant section on here to double check before I give them to him. Thanks again x x
