concern about my star tortoise
Hi my name is tamanna.I have two star tortoise they are gifted me by my friend she boughtthem from somewhere she told me to feed them cabbage leaves tomato lady fingure.now my tortoise eat lady fingure tomato but they don't eat cabbage leaves.once i've tried to feed them cucumber and they liked it.
1.is it ok to give them cucumber?
2.someone told me to give them apple i tried that but they didn't like it, so can i give them apple?
3.i feed my turtles by my hand i hold the peice of ladyfingure and they eat so am i doing wrong bcoz they may b become used to of it and they will not eat by themselve? but i feel that when i see them eating by their own i dont know i feel that they are not able to eat properly.
4.i am leaving in mumbai and don't know any vet here for my star tortoise?
5.i want to take them in garden but whenever i take them to garden kids and people surround us and they don't walk and roam in the garden so i keep them at my home they generally sleep alot only in afternoon and sometime in evening they roam so is it okay or my tortoises are ill?
5.bcoz i can't give them open area to live i sometimes feel that i should give them to such care centers who take care of the tortoise but i don't know any type of such centers in mumbai.
6.what are the various things i can give them to eat?
