Oh yea I think you are right. I removed them from the tortoises reach. They spread into a larger area on my property then usual, must be the rain. Thank you for the help.Reminds me of fiddleneck, in which case, the seeds build up toxicity in the body.
Yep. FIddleneck. I've researched it a bunch. It appears that the early leaves and stems are not toxic, but the seeds heads are. Other sources just list the whole thing as toxic. This plant has been expanding into our area a lot in the last few years and this year it made it into my tortoise pens. I've been pulling it out by the root every day for months now.Does anyone know this plant? I can't seem to figure out if it's safe for the torts.

Thanks in advance for any help.
