I’ve been looking around on this forum and I’m still not sure what to give my Greek tortoise.. i live in Canada and house him indoors and I’ve been giving him dandelion greens, bok choy, spring mix and I’ve been trying to find curly endive but can only find Belgian.

I see some people listing weeds like thistle and hawksbit but I have no idea where I can get these.. if anyone can help me figure out if I’m giving my tortoise a good diet right now and where I can find other things to feed him
Thank you

You'll need to invest some time learning the weeds and plans that grow in your area. Use a plant app, or collet samples and take them to a local garden center. Most garden centers have a resident "plant nerd" that can instantly ID everything. Not a hardware store, but a place that specializes in gardening, like a nursery.

I don't know what is available up in Canada, but you can also grow your own stuff.

You can also add in your own amendments like soaked horse hay pellets, ZooMed grassland pellets, or dried leaf options like what is sold @Kapidolo Farms .
