The old way - Incorrect Diet

Most of the tortoises kept in the UK are vegetarian!

Some tropical tortoises are omnivorous These generally should only be kept by specialists!

In the past (and even today) I hear about people who feed their Greek tortoises on Fruit, Vegetables,  cat biscuits, Dog food and Eggs.

Greek tortoise - Confusing what species is this? It probably needs identifying!

Fruit generally a bad idea for a Mediterranean tortoise (whatever the species) ok for occasional treats no banana!

Vegetables A few are ok, lots you would automatically think are good are habit forming and not very healthy for a tortoise to live on!

Cat biscuits, Dog food, eggs, dairy produce Very dangerous and totally unhealthy
