    A friend recently gave me a calocephalus -- also called "cushion bush" and "silver sand" and a member of the Aster family, according to the internet. Does anyone know if russian tortoises can eat this? I couldn't find it on the tortoise table, but I'd like to put it in our tortoise's enclosure. Not if it's poisonous, though, obviously.

    I couldn't find it on any list, but seeing a picture of it I wouldn't think it would be something a tortoise would be interested in.
