So i got my russian 7 years ago when I was 13 and to be honest I probably wasn't ready, my male russian named Boris somehow overcame my incompetence and has lived this long. Now I am more responsible and ready to be a better pet owner however I have numerous problems with my russian. Not health issue but behavioral issues. Boris is probably the biggest picky anyone has ever heard of. He only eats one food which is bell peppers this is despite my attempt to feed him endive, escarole, etc. I have attempted to feed him every type of food that is apart of his diet. My latest attempt has been a known favorite of russians, dandelions but he won't even take a bite of it. I want my tortoise to be healthy and happy but he has become such a picky eater that he won't eat any of the foods he is supposed to. Please help me out I am at a lose on what to do.
