are The following edible?
In Spanish we call them “tunas” so it didn’t come up on tortoise table. Species I’m feeding is leopard so i know the fruit itself probably isn’t edible but what about the peel?
Bottom pic didn’t have a label so can anyone identify the plant? Thank you.

Try the Tortoise Table, they are specialized at plants for tortoises. Here is a link:

Bizarre looking. Isn't it?
Almost like gigantic Broccoli rabe

I don’t know. The stems are so hard looking I have to think it’s purchased for the seed heads, maybe for some type of tea or for herbal use.

How about Mexican tea bush/epazote? Dysphania ambrosioides, formerly classified as Chenopodium ambrosioides L. Espazote is a commonly used herb in Mexican cooking, although I thought leaves were used, not flower heads. In the goosefoot family, if so, so naturally a do not feed in the Tortoise Table. I’m okay with occasionally feeding plants in this family but I’d take a pass on this one.
