    Thank you...i have now learned that my tortoises need grass asap! I will be buying some fresh grass for now and try growing it later.
    Will they eat grass readily? I read other blogs that tortoises will eat only food that was given earlier and not eat grass

    Greetings

    You will probably have to cut up any grass and other “good foods” in very small pieces and sprinkle it over the foods that you are now feeding. Slowly feed less bad food and feed more good food. Over time, you should be able to just feed good weeds and grass and flowers etc.

    Good luck!
