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:

Mulberry leaves
Grape vine leaves
Rose leaves
Geraniums
Gazanias
Lavatera
Pansies
Petunias
Hostas
