After reading about it on the 'net, I would not allow tortoises to eat it:

I have a plant that keeps trying to grow that's also an escapee. It's a different ivy though. I keep yanking it and anything affiliated with it. This has become a real interesting thread. I probably wouldn't allow my tortoise to eat a hairy plant any way but I could have been fooled. Thanks.
