Can Tortoises eat Petunias? Turtles too? SEE HERE!

All pansies and petunias are acceptable (just make certain they are not fresh from a garden centre, as they may have been sprayed with an insecticide).

If the flowers are new (i.e. not present when you purchased the plants), they are probably fine, but you could remove them and wait for new ones to appear – they will appear quite quickly. And I’d simply hand him a whole flower and watch him tear it apart.

Can Tortoises eat Mexican Petunias?

Despite its name, the Mexican Petunia is unrelated to the Petunia found in hanging baskets and gardens, as it is a member of a completely different plant family. This plant is considered an invasive species in many parts of the world and grows wild, but in the UK it can only be grown as a houseplant and is safe for tortoises as part of a varied diet.

Although the majority of Ruellia species have pink or lilac flowers, they can also be found in red and white.

Can Turtles eat Petunias?

The plant is a member of the nightshade family, which also includes the potato and tomato plants. I am aware that the nightshade and tomato plants are toxic to turtles. I believe that the petunia flower is acceptable (just as is the tomato fruit).

To be safe, I would avoid the plant itself in any enclosure, but feeding the flowers appears to be acceptable.
