    Anyone know if this is safe? I’ve checked tortoise table with the scientific name too. Nothing comes up.

    It’s in the sunflower family is about all I can tell you. I don’t imagine it’s unsafe in moderation but I also can’t imagine a tortoise eating it, given that it tastes somewhat of licorice.

    Perhaps a sulcata *will* eat it? I understand they aren’t always fussy eaters.
