Ok, the title might be a little misleading but I do have a question about my tortoise's diet. I recently got a (they think she's about this age) two year old Russian tortoise for Christmas. While researching I found that feeding a tortoise too much could be harmful. The problem is, I dont know the exact amount to feed her. The website said no more than what could be eaten in 30 minutes. I feed her a mixture of either kale, jicama and carrots or collared greens, zuccini and squash. But usually after fifteen minutes she cleans her plate and then stares at me. Like she wants more. I feed her when I wake up and I only feed her once a day. Should I be doing something different?
