Is it ok for my redfoot to eat this plant?

I planted it for shade, with the intention of allowing my red foot access only after the plant was grown. He knocked down the barrier, however and I'm wondering if I should be worried that he may have consumed some of it.

It might be good to take & upload a few more pictures. Those leaf types are notable for all types of “Elephant Ears” and plants like “Monstera deliciosa”....

So. Maybe some more pix to help properly ID. Plants from tubers are usually on the don’t feed list.

Maybe @Oxalis can look too.

If it is then it is not safe to feed
Thanks for your response!! I checked the local nursery and you're correct, it is a tree philodendron. I planted it for the purpose of additional shading within our outdoor enclosure, where we've kept another tree philodendron which has successfully served the same purpose for 3+ years. I thought he might have nibbled at it, but it looks like he only snuggled up under it.
So what I know is that he enjoys it there, but being that it's something new, I'm not confident that he won't taste it.
