Diet for an Indian Star Tortoise

by Rachel

I have a young Indian Star Tortoise that will only eat romaine lettuce and leafy greens. I've tried feeding it tortoise food and alfafa pellets (tried both hard and softened by water), but he will not touch it. Any suggestions?

What to feed an Indian Star Tortoise
by: Shelly

I wrote about what to feed tortoises here.

There is a link on that page to a great resource about the Indian Star Tortoise, including the Indian Star Tortoise diet.

Keep it slow and steady.
