    Can I feed these to my stars? One of mine had it. One didn't like it much. What do I do? IMG_20180416_181422170.jpg IMG_20180416_181410980.jpg

    That looks like the Crown of Thorns -

    Euphorbia milii

    That would not be a good food for a tortoise.

    Agree with Mark, no pansy. Crown of thorns- no good to feed

    Stay calm! It's mainly the white sap of Euphorbia plants, and really all it does is cause a skin rash, or burns your eyes. The flowers are probably not going to harm your tortoise.
