What fruits and veggies can I feed my sulcata? I know darker greens are better. Right now I feed Mazuri tortoise diet ls, orchard grass, and Timothy hay and kale on occasion. So I was just curious if Someone can help with some other fruits or veggies I can feed my tortoise as I find a lot of contradicting info online. Thanks in advance.

Salcatas should not eat fruits and veggys. They need grasses, hay, weeds, etc. Fruits and vegetables have too much sugars for them. Maybe as a treat once ina long while.

Here is what you should feed a sulcata:

No fruits. Occasional kale is okay, but if you must use grocery store greens, favor endive and escarole most of the time. Mix in the kale, cilantro, collard, mustard and turnip greens, carrot tops, water cress, bok choy and other stuff for occasional variety.

The orchard grass is good. Timothy hay is too stemmy and coarse.
