    I noticed my Russian tortoise Chili eating around the pistil of the hibiscus I fed him today....

    It's funny having started this post about my Redfoot tortoise Darwin hoping for the pistils first... maybe they could work something out.

    Yup, one of my Redfoots, Tonks, rips at the pistil like it’s a Black Friday deal. The other, Talula, ignores them altogether.
