HOW Can Hermann Tortoises eat Daisies? Yay/Nay?

Livingstone daisy is fine but i dont know about tulips. Plus, not all daisies are edible, some are and others are not.

You’ll need to confirm the variety you have in your garden before feeding. For example, Gazania is a daisy-like flower, and it is edible while Chrystanthemums appear like daisises but are toxic.

Gerbera daisies are safe to eat. Transvaal diaises are edible too. So, you need to do your research and be really sure before feeding.
