Hi ,
on Sunday I bought my first tortoise a 16 month old Greek spur thighed named Bud. There are a few things that I would like to clarify, as there is a lot of conflicting info online!
1. What is the ideal night time temperature for a tort of his age
2. What veg can I feed him,hot plants that I can find in the garden.
3. Is the feeding information on this website good: http://m.thetortoisetable.org.uk/m/plants_19.asp?thissection=8
4. Finally would anybody be
able to tell me what sub species he is?

Thanks in advance :tort::)

Welcome!
What a cute little guy.
I can't really help you with the subspecies, but a picture of the plastron, his "belly", might help others identify the correct subspecies.

@HermanniChris is the expert!

Hi, and welcome to the forum!

I don't keep Greek tortoises, so I'll let a more knowledgeable keeper answer your questions.

The tortoise table is a great place for edible garden plants, they even have pictures to make identifying them easier.
