Thank you! For #1. I just remembered the name: you don't think it's dicondra?I believe the little round ones are miners lettuce, safe to feed.
The last one, I don’t remember it’s name, but I believe it’s a relative of parsley and safe to feed. I could be wrong, though.
Whoops, yeah I think I mixed up miner’s lettuce and kidney weeds (dicondra). Still safe, thoughThank you! For #1. I just remembered the name: you don't think it's dicondra?
2. Hmm yeah it had little yellow flowers I think. Is that a bad sign?
Sorry. Thank you so much!
Hmm.. Ok! I have some new pictures!Welcome!
I don’t know if it’s buttercup (need more photos!) but Russians are fine to eat those; it’s a common food in their natural habitat. If I was lucky enough to have it growing locally I’d let my Russian have at it (she decimated the ones I planted last year within days).
I know it’s one of the plants that get listed as a “do not feed” in some places but again, it’s a common natural food and we also have plenty of owners on the East Coast and in the UK who have fed it for many years with no issues.
Only you know what’s best for your tortoise. No reason to feed if you are a new owner and nervous; there are plenty of other foods that no one disagrees on.
I don't know. I think it might be. If you look above, there are tiny spiky spheres in the picture, and I think I saw that on creeping buttercup picturesWhoops, yeah I think I mixed up miner’s lettuce and kidney weeds (dicondra). Still safe, though
Could the second one be creeping buttercup? I researched further, and some people say it’s mildly toxic, while some people say it’s good to feed. In that case, a nibble or two wouldn’t hurt, as long as it’s only used in moderation.
No, I don't think so. This one is not hairy. Better picture coming soon
. one of these might be clover... Mix up with pictures... Long story! I hope it is buttercup, because she is not eating most of the stuff I'm giving her. Thanks sooooo much for this info. Cause she loves her dandelion... But is not eating field madder, so I'm gonna give up on that. She's just begging for me to give her dandelions!Sorry, you’re right, they aren’t great pictures.
There are all kinds of buttercups, some hairy and some not. I’m still leaning buttercup but I need a good picture of the plant growing in the ground and a good picture of the flower (looking down, not too close).
Wow! Great! Thank you so much!Buttercup! Looks like you stop mowing part of your lawn. Who know else is down there!
You never know with a tortoise what they will eat. Keep offering it on occasion. My tortoise ate something last year she wouldn’t try the three years prior. It’s still not a favorite but there are things she loved three years back she doesn’t care for now.
