    A FB friend of mine lives in South Africa, and found a young leopard tortoise in the yard eating cat poop, and wondered why.

    I guess that if you have an iffy eater... find some cat poop and offer that? Just a thought.

    Most tortoises are opportunistic eaters. Just because they take a bit of that dead rabbit, or are seen eating scat, doesn't mean that should be part of their diet. I know you were kidding, just wanted to comment.
