    hi guys,

    I'm based Dorset, England and I have two adult male and female stars which have just had two hatchlings so far, I'm looking to grow my own food for them in the house but not sure on what?

    Any one from England have any recommendations? Also any one feed cactus to there torts? Can any one recommend where to get it from?

    Thanks Danny

    I'm not from England, but here is a list of what I feed my stars. I typed this up for sulcatas, so just ignore all the text about grass and skip to the list. I feed a some grass to my stars, but not nearly as much as the sulcatas…
