Can Hermann Tortoises eat Baby Spinach?
Sure thing! Go ahead but don’t feed it often.
Personally, I also wouldn’t recommend giving calcium every day. Twice a week is plenty.
Your pet tortoise needs a more natural diet. Grocery store lettuces by themselves are not a great diet. Here are some suggestions:
Grape vine leaves
