    No care sheet in particular to recommend.

    They are an omnivorous tortoise so they have a diverse diet - leaves, flowers, fruit, fungi, animal protein (snails and worms are good choices). They also enjoy gnawing on cuttlebone.

    I made a facebook page 'indotestudo' with many articles on their natural history.

    Yellow squash seems to bring out their hunger but is only part of a good varied diet.
