You can give the Star Hibiscus leaves (cut in small pieces) Coriander (Kothmir) dusted with cuttle fish bone (you can find it at any Love bird store) powder for additional calcium to have proper development in shell.

i have 2 star tortoise. i eats only pumpkin while the other eats only bhindi. Although i tried for months different varieties like cucumber, potato, spinach, cabbage but they simply refused to change their food habits. is it harmful for them to eat continuously only one variety of food?

French Beans r d best options

Please scroll down the page I'm going to give you the link to.

You will see what to feed a star tortoise. Feed it when it is hungry. If an animal is given the correct food, it will not overeat.

Star Tortoise Diet

First of all, a star tortoise diet should have NO pesticides. So be sure that wherever you get the food from, it has not been treated with pesticides.

Second, read this excellent article on a good star tortoise diet.

Keep it slow and steady.
