I am worried about my tortoise having throat problems from eating collard greens he’s eaten a lot over the last year and I didn’t realize they can cause thyroid issues I have mainly been feeding him collerd and dandelion greens any help on other stuff I can feed

When your thyroid gland causes a goiter, you actually see a large lump on the neck. Don't worry about it.
